Passing Vision

A libation poured unbidden
upon the sun-parched earth
unlocked a seed's potential
for life as well as mirth

For a patch of vibrant color
Emerged from that favoured spot
And as I passed it drew my eye
This new life unleashed by lot

Now examining a life without due regard
for gods or greater matters
Can discern only half the inner thirsts
That leave like minded souls in tatters

And so I thank my G_d today
for unearned graces granted
And overturn my half filled cup
towards errant seeds unplanted
