crowned with soil

One month ago I planted some seeds I found in my mother's house after she died last Spring.  All month I have waited and waited to see if they would burst through the soil.  I check every morning and every night for signs of green. Nothing.  When I had just about given up, I found this pumpkin seed, crowned with soil, reaching for the sun.  I can't believe the power of that seed! So green, so beautiful, doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing--pushing, growing, reaching, bringing forth new life.
