“… choosing again what I once chose before.”

Sometimes hidden from me
in daily custom and in trust,
so that I live by you unaware
as by the beating of my heart,

Suddenly you flare in my sight,
a wild rose blooming at the edge
of thicket, grace and light
where yesterday was only a shade,

And once more I am blessed, choosing
again what I once chose before.

“The Wild Rose” by Wendell Berry
