Nature's Quiet Gifts

The Gift of Life

She found you hiding in a shriveled leaf
Tender fingers coaxed you to be brave.
Tenderly she placed you 
amongst the softest down.

The beginning of life
miracle incubating in a shell
dancing through the warmed soil.

Nature's seamstress wove
through the silent night,
stitch upon stitch
threading a brooch
of crystal pearls.

Where do you tread
 with your velvet padded feet?

Roses Crimson with
morning dew
through crystallized velvet.
