Nature's Lesson




Nature's lesson:
try everything
(including caution)
like a finicky cook;

utilize everything;
struggle for height,
or depth, or balance,
or whatever you've chosen;

leave something behind
that can be used
by someone of another
approach.

Nature says
it's more important to learn
to recover from failure
than to learn to avoid it.
