A conversation between the plant and the Lord

Root me in your heart, says the plant
Yes, but tell me why, says the Lord

Most soil is too hard, says the plant
Yes, many hearts are, says the Lord

Most soil doesn’t have space to breathe, says the plant
Yes, many hearts don’t, says the Lord

Most soil isn’t fertile, says the plant
Yes, many hearts refuse to hold death, says the Lord

Most soil is too restricted, says the plant
Yes, many hearts are too small, says the Lord

I want to grow forever, says the plant fiercely. That is why
I want to be rooted in your heart:

And the Lord gently gathered the plant,
tender roots and all, into the infinite heart
