Catalog of Growth





The right seed in the right season grows a garden of miracles for me.  I get the food for my table or the stores for winter, sometimes when I’m in a Jack like predicament, right planted seeds can provide a bean stalk of escape from my restricted life. I have a role to play with these wonders.  I must sort the seeds from the pebbles.  I must let the kernels out of my pocket and into the ground.  I water when I can and harvest what comes to fruition.  Though the best by far is the part when I get to share the seeds.







Putter in your emotional garden







The rain makes shadows of water
It spills onto the ground like tiny worlds
What had been airborne and mist
Is now earthbound and integral
Feeding, cutting, learning the world

Once I contemplated theories and mystery
Now washing dishes is a spiritual service
The view was lovely when I was above it all
But now I course through the veins of life

There may come a time when I am untouchable again
But by then I will have been a part of it all
I will carry the world with me always
An orbiting servant
Not just above but through
