A Mighty Seed by Raymond A. Foss
Hidden in the small kernel,
the collection of a few cells,
the whole of a tree, a mighty shrub,
a home for birds, or more
a metaphor of faith, of hope, of life
growing within us
within each beating heart
potential to be so much more
than our beginnings, vulnerable,
mute, small, babies
in time, with love, care, nurture
as with the seed, with water, soil, sunlight
a chance to be so much more
than the seedling at the birth
the birthing from soil or womb
to stand tall and move mountains
to walk humbly and serve our neighbor
to be sheep and shepherd
to herald His message,
our good, good news
A mighty seed indeed
within each one of us
