We rise from and return to the dust

See the origin of plants in the dust
The ground was fertile, fecund, ample
bearing within it many potentials,
readinesses waiting,
gift opportunities,
receptors waiting for your arrival,
welcoming you in.
Our protein-molecule hormone receptors
evolved as the fertile ground,
the gardens upon gardens within
over time that welcomed in
the wandering hormones that fit them,
keys for locks, and
have been the dust, fecund,
in which the plants of our nature have grown,
embedding the forest of a cell,
an evolving practice,
and the bed of higher things.
