Only corn

Faith is the vision of the heart; it sees God in the dark as well as in the day.

The brown curly silks
The creamy beige Tassels
Just Corn
There is nothing just about it
The blister,the milk, the dough.
That is only the kernels.

Tassels of Creamy beige little grains threaded together opening, opening
Silks from straight and clear changing, changing to curly brown

Leaves of deep green growing, growing to architectural glory
Curving up and down to catch the sun.

Stalks,straight to the sky keeping everything happening, happening:
from tassels dropping pollen to Silks catching, to kernels in the cobs fattening, fattening

Roots the hidden bits
Carrying, carrying
Water and nutrients from the soil
All to provide an ear of corn.

Respect! A BIG NO to
JUST corn. This is ALL corn.

The roots carrying, carrying
All the beauty of corn. The blue of the vases represent water with the smiling sun. It was blasted by the wind and difficult down pours but grew from seed. How wonderful it is to celebrate its “hereness ” corn on the cob.

We fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

2 Corinthians 4: 18
