Make the Way

The plum bonsai sits in the window
not asking for the sunlight to wrap it
in any treasured way nor to be special
like the sailboat in the bay requiring 
wind to move across the water.  To be
on the fringe of things is not about 
being accepted or not accepted but
requires a certain type of movement
like the boat riding through waves.
There is nothing forced about the prow
separating the path it must follow
through the water.  The water parts
to make the way.
