God bends down

God bends down and digs in the dirt
He probes in the earth around the roots of his planting.
Is the soil moist enough?
It's not too moist, is it?
Is it loose enough?
Dirt clings in the cracks of his fingers.
The warm sun beats down.
A light breeze blows.
God surveys his planting.
He prunes it back a little.
Is it hardy enough?
Will it withstand the heat to come?
Will it live through the cold?
God thinks so.
God has planted well.
