Just a tiny nut

The shell must be cracked apart if what is in it is to come out, for if you want the kernal you must break the shell. — Meister Eckhart

just a tiny nut

in the palm of a hand

jiggling jagged pathways

in smooth lines barely visible

rough around the edges

with one small crack

and look! an eye!

popping, peeping, peering through

should i stay or should i go?

she questions she fears she knows

this is a shell worth cracking
