seeds (Mark 4:26-34)

we imagine the kingdom
as a bonsai plant,
that neatly trimmed art form
just the right size
for us and a select few;
a redwood forest
where we can wander,
gazing up at the towering
giants of faith, before
getting into our cars
to do more sightseeing;
those gentle pines who
whisper in the breezes
and whose needles provide
a soft bed where we
can curl up with apathy;
so it will be as long
as we leave your
of hope, grace, life,
peace, joy, wonder
deep within the ground,
