There’s something a little magical

about planting

pushing those seeds

into the good earth

water and fertilise

and wait with hope

for the first small shoot


There’s something rather exciting

about tending those babies

weeding and watering

enough sun, enough shade

protecting from pests

and day by day

watching them grow


There’s nothing quite like

eating the fruit

of that first seed

gifted by sun, and soil

your own hard work

and the blessing of heaven


A world of wonder

a connection with the divine

which started when you held

a gift from God

in one little seed
