the inexplicable miracle of life
I slid it into my back pocket and then let it rest unopened on my desk for a few days before taking a scalpel to it's orderly stitching.
Five or six small seeds dropped out, I'm not sure now.
But I followed the instructions on the rear of the card and planted them.
Even though there was no instruction to water them I decided it was a good idea and have spent the last 10 days doing so each morning.
Then sproing spriong three fragile little green Y shapes popped out of the soil.
They continue to grow larger each day.
As does my heart for the woman whose hand set this life in motion.
