Equinox Reminders

Seedlings pushing up their heads
remind me on this thirteenth birthday 
of little heads held warmly 
embraced by love's confident
hold in the midst of frozen, 
war torn soil.

Today you are with me, having 
come to my life as a blessing 

Are they ever deserved
these many blessings of mine 
or  even recognized
 until the days pass 
by and the absence or ongoing 
presence reminds me 

that I am surrounded, 
that I have been  invited  to nurture 
growing, flowering, possibilities.

Then day by day if I chance to observe 
they are present,  not only the 
buds but full blooms

embraces me.
