doesn’t get much more hopeful than that

doesn’t get much more hopeful than that

*****

*****

believing in a dormant seed

digging a six inch hole

plopping it in

poking it deep

all the paper thin layers

torn

scaly and rough

around the edges

*****

*****

doesn’t get much more hopeful than that

covering it up

patting it down

praying

for

just enough sun

just enough freeze

and

just enough thaw

*****

*****

for roots to search

and

 tops to reach

up through stale, black earth

and

bloom

*****

*****

no, it doesn’t get much more hopeful than that

*****

“I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness
    in the exuberant earth.
Stay with God!
    Take heart. Don’t quit.
I’ll say it again:
    Stay with God.”

~Psalm 27:14~

(Side note: My little daisies are so confused . . . I know they don’t come from bulbs, but the little stinkers are blooming right now. Quite out of season for Indiana!)
