Even the weeds

the bits that don't belong --
the artificial flowers,
the fabric watering can --
the parts of our lives
that just don't fit
and don't really work --
provide an important
burst of color,
drawing our eyes
to the beauty of the ordinary,
to the holiness of the normal,
and helping us to see
that the weeds we struggle with
are minor -- and very much belong.
