tender shoot rises
breaking through the earth

8Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind.

Inspired by the Lenten Journey reading of 1 Peter 3:8-18a

    Tender shoots humbly reaching up for light and moisture, rising out of fertile ground--that is what God wishes for each of us,His dear children.

    with nurturing those tiny shoots you can barely see -- erupt to large healthy strong plants ... may our faiths continue to follow the same patterns of growth and strength! :-)

    I love this haiku Terri, it's surely well composed and strong.
