Faith and Strength 

for life to flow forward,
a green wave of food
derived from sunlight
chases the brightest opportunity
eagerly ’round our swaying planet;
all of the leaves unfurl
at just the right moment;
stalks, blades, shoots and spores
rise from darkness in perfect synchrony

thus we too prepare to receive,
trusting in a light we cannot see
but are pulled tirelessly toward,
an unrelenting ache in our hearts
that, when we allow, releases in us
new ways of being and fresh starts
days filled with promise, renewed love
and an ever-present sustaining trust
that together we continue to evolve
that together we rise through familiar homes
toward thrilling new discoveries above
