While the plants burst forth in spring

While
the plants
burst forth
in spring,
and grow,
I contemplate
their return
to many
separate
roots
returning
to one's roots
brings
quiet
accepting
quiet
aligns one
with fate
fulfilling
fate
is common
and constant
to know
that rule
is to be
wise
to ignore
what always is
leads crash
into disaster
knowing
the constant
expands
your vision
opening
your heart,
granting
impartiality,
become king,
then god,
then one
with the way
to be one
with the way
is to be
forever
enduring
even
after death
unharmed
