Xylem…

​”You don’t have to be somebody different to be important. You’re important in your own right.” -Michelle Obama. 

Xylem.                                      

Conveying words of propitiating love;

Transporting compassion    

Cleansing broken soul.        

Quenching tears of diaphonous fragility,  

Displacing beguility, 

bringing hold.
Phloem;

Diffusing, whispers of timely credence,

Delivering intimacy,

Supporting, rapport.

Absorbing radiance, eluding despondecy,

Growing, a heart,

Once withered in pain.
