Sustenance

…would the same tasks which fill our daily lives put on new meanings if we wrought them in the spirit of renewal from within–a spirit of growth and beauty.”

— Helen Keller

The hummingbird delivers 

pollen to the generous flower,

that open table draped in silk

offering up delectable nectar,

and this cycle fosters a continual 

banquet —creation is filled 

with the beauty of such symbiotic 

relations.  Never underestimate 

how much you give or diminish 

what you take — balance 

is essential in the nourishing 

of earth — sow, harvest, plant, reap, 

allow for times of rest, respect 

these natural patterns that began 

when God told us upon leaving Eden,

Cultivate the ground…We 

are accountable to steward 

what we receive for renewal.
