A small seed lives nested in the warm, dark earth of a garden. It is just the time, just the beginning, just the very start of something to be.

The shell expands and slowly water and nutrients seep inside, around the old, hard, protective shell and into the rich inner core. A small sprout starts to push out and up, slowly at first, and then more and more confidently, up through the layers of dark soil. The sprout grows, gets stronger. It grows tall and strong in the sunlight, buds and flowers, adding color and fragrance to the garden. Then, one by one other seeds repeat, until the pattern of the planting is obvious for all to see. I can do that with my reading.
