In Tompkins Square Park
there is one beautiful, lonely evergreen
that I noticed
In fact, the only one that I noticed
in a city where so much seems to go unnoticed.
Sleepy subways stations
Ear buds in,
He notices me though
He see’s me like I see this evergreen
Green and growing,
Perfectly and uniquely made.
For “are not two sparrows sold for a penny?
Yet not one of them will fall to the ground
apart from the will of your Father.
And even the very hairs on your head are all numbered.
So do not be afraid;
you are worth more than many sparrows (Matthew 10:29-31).”
