Dear Seed,

How do you do your voodoo?
—your metamorphosis
from dry brown husk to miracle
(in the most scientific
sense of the word)

a universe the size of a speck
as in the big bang burst
when this larger one split
the bounds of nada
no bigger than a physicist’s thought
becoming something deeply real
like you which
bursts from next to nothing
no bigger than a farmer’s hope
into something full of satisfaction
as a meal.

I bless your name.
