Sweet seeds of being

Into each life
you drop
sweet seeds of being:
dark and light,
wet and dry,
lush and sparse
the tension
of the opposites designed
to burst thin husks of wonder;
to expose
the fragile heart within
to deep rich grace; the loam
that surrounds, and grounds
and nurtures each living soul.
