Today I finally completed a task that has been lingering a very long time. I shared the clover seed gifted to me months earlier, tossing seed into places where nothing else was growing. I love four leaf clovers, and find five and six leaf as well. This seeding was an act of love giving back, and my contribution of a handful of seeds seemed minimal in comparison to what I’ve received in sight and sound from the surrounding nature.
Need we give to nature?
Why shouldn’t we, with as much as we receive. We should remember that we are really not far removed, despite our human mentally-focused need to put ourselves “above it all”.
Life is full of exchanges
Yet everything in life is an exchange. Our breath, our communications, the path we choose, they are all an exchange. What we give is our choice, whether conscious or unconscious.
Clovers are amazing plants. They are a favored flower for honey bees, our great pollinators. So much of our food supply is dependent on the chain of events between flower, bee, growth, and harvest. Clovers also draw nitrogen from the air and “fix” it into their leaves and roots, making them valuable contributors to the health of soil.
My handful of seeds scattered, I continued my walk. On the return home I was gifted with a five leaf clover rising up, not from the seeds I spread, of course, but from a strong established plant.
In folklore the four leaf clover is known as a symbol of luck. Yet the stories of days gone by look at the four leaf clover not just as some frivolous find, but as a blessing:
One leaf for fame and one for wealth,
And one for a constant lover,
And one to wish you glowing health,
All in- this Four-leaf Clover.
Lucky Clovers – Four Leaf, Five Leaf, Lucky for All
What does the fifth leave mean? Let’s use our imaginations. Wealth, fame, love and health, what more could we ask for? Freedom, creativity, knowledge, spiritual presence, and the ability to make a strong contribution to the world, giving more than we could ever receive. That last one sounds good, and it fits so beautifully into the life of a clover.
