A Christmas Eve Reflection

As the roots travel deep

The stem soars high

The network grows wide

Yet prefers to hide

Fragile petals soon form brilliantly beautiful then fade

To make way for the fruit that’s now budding

Still the networks of roots are growing and growing

Moving through the darkness

Organically mining the soil for goodness

Extracting and returning in the beautifully designed cycle of life

So if you ever find yourself fumbling in the dark

Keep searching

You may indeed find your mark

Find what fuels you and makes you strong

Discover what you’ve been searching for all along

Not many look in the dirty mess of the soil of their lives

Yet we all grow upon the ground

Its worth taking time to recognize the roots we’re sending down

For the shoots are far easier to see

Perhaps take a moment of reflection on this Christmas Eve
