Whatever is at rest is easy to hold

whatever
is
at rest
is
easy
to hold
plans
go
best
before
any signs
emerge
the tender
rose petal

is
easily
ripped
and broken
the tiny
seeds
are

so easy
to toss
and scatter
act
on
something
before
it
appears
order
things
before
chaos
gets
a chance
a tree
as broad
as two huts
starts
in an acorn
a watchtower
nine stories
high
begins
as clay
a journey
of a thousand
miles
starts
with one step
but
once
something
appears,
fussing
ruins it
