coming up through the cracks

With the onset of Spring, I’ve noticed several plants coming up through the cracks.  In the midst of a busy sidewalk or hope plant in crackrocky wall, there grows a bit of Life that has settled in and announced, “I’m here to stay.”  She does not ask for much, just a bit of sun, nutrition, and water, all of which she derives from the space around her, however desolate that place may seem.  She just spreads her arms and offers thanksgiving for the blessing of beginning again.
