Becoming

Kelly, in her "Dilettante's Diary: the internal dialogue of a hedonist bluestocking" has an Anias Nin Quote-fest going on. I share it here because I enjoy Anais's writing and I know a few of you enjoy quotes.

She ends with this one:
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin
To which my response was:
becoming
we are all becoming
each moment a new bud born
it is only a matter of
do we become the blossom
or do we become,
in time and with the assistance
of bacteria and worm
soil for next spring's annual
