NaPoWriMo Day 5 – The Humility of The Actor, The Sunflower, and The Ladybug (after Alicia Ostriker, Freeverse)

To be humble
said the actor
is to let praise
stay as fallen confetti
on the ground
and never to let it
wash your brain
with desires uncalled for.

To be humble
said the sunflower
is to witness
the dropped jaws
as you bloom,
yet keep your face
turned to
your nourishment
your roots, your truth.

To be humble
said the ladybug
is to have
inherent beauty,
but never be the one
to realise it
or bask in the glory
of all that love.
