Strange Gift

Never did seed
feel incomplete
without roots and stem

Never did branch
feel bereft
without leaf and twig

Never did leaf
feel incomplete
without flower

Never did flower
feel worthless
without seed

Ah, no
The Creator gifted
to each
thought free
satisfaction

But I am neither seed
Nor branch
Leaf nor flower

Her strange gift
to me
restless striving
to be
something more
