Took this photo on April 29, 2019 at Wormsloe Historic Site in Georgia. I saved a photo almost exactly like this the Spring of 2015, not knowing where it was but thinking to myself how badly I wanted to see a place like it. The universe has a funny way of bringing things back around to us.

Nature Finds a Way

Covered by concrete and resistance
and pressure to keep it down, down,
further down.
Denial and twisted perception
of what we want, what we need;

Of the things we prefer
to perceive.

Choking it all, dry and cracking,
No, no, we push it down, down.
Trembling hands
and cramping hearts,
Nature will always find a way.
