      GROWING CONSTANTLY

      My dearest Lord,
      Flowers are growing and growing.
      Please, tell me,
      Why are *my* flowers not growing?
      "My child,
      Your flowers *are* growing
      But not constantly."
      My dear Lord,
      Is it because sometimes
      The sky is overcast with clouds
      And the sun cannot shine on them?
      "No, no, no!"
      Is it because the soil was not fertile
      The day the seed was sown
      And roots were unable to develop?
      "No, no, no, no!"
      Then, please, my Lord,
      Tell me how my flowers can grow
      Constantly!
      I am tired of their wriggly shapes.
      "My sweetest child,
      There is only one reason
      Why your flowers are not growing
      Constantly-
      You are half asleep
      Wake up!"

      My Lord,
      I don't want to wake up.
      Once I am fully awake
      The animal world frightens me.
      "Not true, my child!
      It is the other way around.
      Face the world constantly
      And see what will happen-
      Tigers will turn into fuzzy cats,
      Lions will turn into faithful dogs,
      The cockcrow will turn into a nightingale's
      Morning song.
      There is no animal that can frighten you.
      Have faith!"

      Father,
      Yesterday You surprised me
      With a funny looking cricket sitting quietly
      On the steering wheel of my bike
      While I was watering the flowers.
      It's spiritual meaning is
      Illumination!
      Ah, and the brimstone butterflies
      Were so charmingly dancing
      Around my head-
      They triggered a smile.

      -Doris
