Boldness grabs a comet
at midday.

Humility coddles
her own mother’s lullaby.

Boldness strikes a fire
in the heart of a drum.

Humility extends rootlets
under glimmering snow.

Boldness flings kernels
into an early spring twister.

Humility brings morning
coolness to ripening wheat.

Boldness slaps the face of a rainbow.
Humility baits the fishing line.

Boldness flashes yellow and red.
Humility glows blue and green.

Both inhale the white ether.
Both exhale the house.
