Miracle Flower


Flower growing out of wall

Flower Growing From My Church Wall, by JoAnne Silvia


The wind must have blown fiercely

to lodge the seed between the bricks,

in just the right place where it would not be washed away.

The seed waited for moisture, to release  its life force.

It welcomed the rain flowing down through the channels

and pushed roots into the gritty mortar,

searching for  nourishment

to build the long, bare stem,

reaching up and out with all its strength

to the light,

letting the rain run down its stem

back to the roots.

The single yellow flower at the end of the long stalk

bloomed where it was planted,

living life to the fullest,

a beacon of hope.
