Who could ever imagine
that out of plain brown duff
such a stunning and complex
being might be fashioned.

Who could ever imagine
such a being, out of dust
(humans, after all, from dust and rib)
might come
and then not believe.

Oh, my! You have lady slippers? No wonder you've fashioned such a fine poem. Those are pretty inspirational, even for those of us who prefer the ol' death-and-resurrection theme rather than the endless cycle of life.

And the poem reminds me of the truthy and wonderful line from Flannery O'Connor: "Faith is what you know to be true, whether you believe it or not."

That's one to ponder, for sure. ;)
