It is a miracle, and so important to remain opening to see it this way!
May I never take such miracles for granted.
It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it?
Definitely. From things that seem dead, life emerges.
I never see something like this without remember Dylan Thomas’ famous beginning lines:
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose
My youth is bent by the same wintry fever…
We’re surrounded by miracles every day, beginning with the moment we re-open our eyes.
Thanks for sharing that. And yes, we sure are.
I thought of Whitman, but I confess I had to look it up. 🙂
Why, who makes much of a miracle? As to me I know of nothing else but miracles,
And then he goes on to list so many miracles around him in everyday life.
I love that you took the time and care to witness the miracle and to share it with us.
My Mother’s Day gift was a lovely little sunflower sprout (?) that my daughter grew from seed. It’s perfect (as long as I can keep it alive!).
Thanks for sharing Mr. Whitman’s words. How nice that a post with no words in it has produced comments with beautiful words. 🙂
Yeah – it gets me each and every time I sese it too 🙂
It never grows old.
Bill, I agree that all life is a miracle. The spark of life in a seed lays dormant for some times years before getting the right conditions to wake up. Some good soil and a little water and the seed comes to life. I’m always amazed to see it happen. Tiny little seeds such as the lettuce or carrot seeds will grow into a huge plant compared to the seed. Each little seed has the potential to reproduce itself by hundreds. Yes, Virginia (pun intended), it is the miracle of life.
Have a great bean planting day.
You’ll appreciate this. I just came in from cutting hay all day. As I was pulling the tractor into the shed I saw my wife coming in from picking potato bugs by flashlight.
There’s nothing like growing plants from seeds. I’m always in awe of my huge tomato plants that came from one little seed.
It is amazing. Look at an acorn and an oak for another example. Seeds fascinate me.
For this miracle to occur someone needs to plant the seed, otherwise sadly the miracle remains dormant… oh ho this is deep 😉 but credit to you, where credit is due.
Hard to beat a bean doing it’s thing, Bill. –Curt
