Latency


Deep down, beyond our knowing
(or where the knowing comes with such great ease),
the light, the dark are balanced
just like the quarter moon that heralds Spring.
As Spring, itself, gives witness
to ways in which to get this balance right -
each year, it comes to greet us
with simple symmetry of day and night.

The wonders of the universe
are very close at hand;
the clues abound,
they're all around,
they show the master plan.
Yes, every Spring
these wonders sing
and beckon us to see
the awesome power hidden in a seed.

Deep down, within our beings,
the simple truths are winging through our souls.
Their flight, their dance unhurried -
and yet they can so quickly take us home
to peace, to understanding
that is already nestled in our hearts -
it rests, to be uncovered
if we just open up and take our part

in wonders of the universe
so very close at hand,
where clues abound
from all around
to show us how it's planned
that every Spring
these wonders sing
and beckon us to see
the awesome power hidden in a seed.

I really liked this....the awesome power in the seed.  Just yesterday I was marveling at how such tender shoots push up through the hard clay soil.  Someone wise said,  "Who puts the seed beneath  the sod and waits for growth believes in God."
