before I plant,
I hold
that Seed
in the Palm
of my Hand.
Some Seeds
are large,
like those Dry Edible Beans,
not much bigger
than a particle of Soil.
I dare not sneeze
in the presence
of those tiny Petunia Seeds.
As I hold
that Living Being
bursting with Life,
I am
face to face
with the Great Mystery.
I cannot make Life.
Only the Divine
can do that.
I bear witness to
and hopefully nurture
this Miracle
called Life.
I am
infinitely small
in the Scheme
of Things.
I am
growing comfortable
with my place.
