Planted Past

 The sun illuminates
 a seeding breath
 that blows ahead
 past mistakes
 planted in the ground
 of a man
 that sees deep
 from inside a tree
 where the roots
 begin to paint internally
 on a palette underneath
 where the colors
 rise to the earth
 as the rains bleeds

    Chris ...the errors of the past ..are not our enemy, they serve to our seed for growth, and to sweep via the errors of the past.
