Gentle Souls

There are gentle souls,

those who tread lightly

when breaking new ground,

careful not to disturb

all that is living.

Those with caring hands,

that reach into soil,

nourish the land,

harvest that growth;

they give out, give back.

You see them, bodies

bent as they work,

the very act like prayer

as they tend God’s

good world, and the beauty

of that hard work becomes

a fragrance, an offering

for all of us.  This morning,

when I see new blooms

blossoming in the beauty 

of a tiny garden that offers 

me such peace, I will thank 

God for such willing-hearted 

stewards, devoted tillers

of this green earth.
