It’s Not from the Weave of Forgiveness

By Dan A. Cordoza

& thinking it sewed
or simply letting go.

Not from the force of pain
felt in its planting
in the deep ground below.

From the just about
anyone telling you so.

The blizzard of thoughts
in your dying; no.

Weave not in
its grafting alone.

Of choosing
where it will seed
It’s not.

Forgiveness
when given
is where it will grow.
