The Will to Live

While doing the dishes today, I found a lentil which had sprouted in the dish drainer.  Such will to live!  Such ignoring of the odds and the illogical circumstances in which to take a shot at life!  Who was I to deny assistance after this one lone lentil made such a valiant effort?

I planted it – in a pot in which I had two days previously planted a handful of lavender seeds.  Welcome to the neighborhood, lentil.  Let’s see what you’ve got!
