David Arkell

Darkness shrouds the single seed,
Buried deep in earthy tomb;
Life, it seems, has fled its course.

Trustful wait meets every need,
Nurtured in the Mother's womb;
Transformation's gentle force.

Roots embedded drink and feed,
Movement up away from gloom;
Gardener's soil of rich resource.

Change which nothing can impede.
Pushing forth from soft cocoon,
Reaching up to Light's applause.

Father's hoe to help succeed,
Opening out in fruitful bloom,
Fragrant grace uplifts, outpours.

Inspired by a beautiful spring day, thoughts of isolation, and God's unlimited power to revive and renew.

Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches." Matthew 13.31-32
