Life inside a package appearing worn and weak
Begins unfolding in the dark, vibrant hopeful leaves
Growing like a story, beginning at the end
Motivated by the sunshine, strengthened by the wind
Nourished by rainfall, reaching upward, (or around)
Ever becoming stronger, rests deeper in the ground
Joyful in diversity, single in desire
To reach the Sun, smile in his face, bloom, and then expire.
No fear compels Life to decline or hesitate
Life now spreading outward, does not falter, does not wait
Root beneath the soil of Lives who gave with joyful will
Offered to the Sunshine, three, five, eight, and counting still. . .
The seeds of Life to come.
