watering the seedlings,
the sunlight shone through the droplets
as they fell to earth, through space,
and exploded into life.

so close to me, i am mesmerised,
as they fall, diamonds grown
in the blink of any eye,

to give life to the land,
to the buried, and the alive.

my feet are wetted,
everything seems so green,
i now can see again the things that were unseen,
that were always so close to me.

i can smell the smell,
it will stay with me still,

but i am glad that you are now free,
watering the seedlings,
you are now, so very close to me.

    lines that keep perception alive; refreshed; rebirthed;
    grows/observation of/from right where you are/star;
    enlightening; mystically empathized; shared
