Lone Little Propagule

Lone little propagule,
standing in the shadows
of your brothers,
you are the only one I see.

I almost didn’t.
I’m so used to the big life;
it’s easy to forget
how it all began.

May be it’s because
I don’t see it that often,
either I can’t find it
among the big players,

Or I don’t go looking.
I’ve been taught that
size is proportionate
to importance.

It is a false sentiment,
one I am trying to shake off.
Unfortunately,
it is not as fragile as you are.

I hope you stand straighter
and bury your roots deep
in unsteady shores;
you are the only one to do so.
