The Bulb In Thee

In the bulb there is a flower
In the seed an apple tree
Something God alone can see

And God in me if I choose to
see the flower in the bulb
that is thee. What eyes do I
need to perceive beneath the
frozen soil of soul the seed
longing to be? Am I the breath
calling it forth to breathe? Am
I the rain to quench your thirsting?

Will my hands be the gentle touch
coaxing free the bright flower
in the bulb that is thee?
