The Lesson of Spring Soil

2132603969_25bbd3af4c_o

 

Soil slides aside allowing an emergence.

Flower seed breaks, becoming resurrected

over the reasons and chances that it might not

 

make it or shouldn’t come.

Alive it rises, a new life, a new

colorful character in the neighborhood.

 

Sustained by the power of the sun, earth knows

how to welcome the stranger:

food provided, room is made—

 

a warm loving home to the foreigner.

Yes to new life. Yes to self-sharing.

Praise for earth knowing and role-modeling:

 

It’s actually quite natural to boldly give

radical hospitality.
