Hidden Mysteries Between the Cracks of Sidewalks in Cities   4 comments

This is sooooo amazingly true, the short post that I just found tonight over at “plantfolk herbs” written earlier this year by Kate Gardiner Clearlight.  I had started writing a response in the comment section over there, when I went into a light Meditation and turned my comment into a story…and decided since it was proper in posting it here on my blog for others to read and/or respond to:

“…..and there have been many times when I have went into a city or small town (I grew up and still live in the Country area back in the woods of Michigan) and have felt that I loved the bright lights or unique stores or fancy restaurants — but wondered how the people lived in these kinds of places without being able to step out into Nature and feeling Her beautiful touch of life.  

“Then I found a crack in the sidewalk and saw some green growing through it, looking deeper yes, there was brown dirt in there, embedded upon the cement slabs on the ground.  Who’d ever think that something could live, grow, and be nurtured surrounded by man-made objects?

“Falling from the Sky came tremendous rains from above, drenching the thirsty Earth’s land around the surrounding area.  Yes, the ‘Earth’!  That solid ground of clay or dirt and sand or soil…between the crack, that’s where the rain drained into, absorbed down into the abyss of the unknown, like rivers running wild in many different direction under ground.

“The Ah-HA! moment that, of course!  A Seed that had been mysteriously planted by the environment’s changes in the weather, caught a touch of the rain and quenched its thirsty self into a new growth — and pushed its way up with strength and durability, weaseling its way from hitting the top of the bottom of the cement and continuing to grow, turning and twisting until it found its way through the dark to the light of day…..

in the city of what
used to be and still is
a part of Mother Nature’s

Sacred and Most
