Lessons From A Seed

Today, I marveled at the singleminded effort of a seed.

Conceived in a bloom and set free

tumbling to earth

to lay and wait

covered by snow and the oblivion of all that came before.

An entirety of existence bound in itself

the passing of time allows the opportunity to root

a chance to twist down and hold fast, to nurture the future with the past

only when the roots are strong can it push up

with blind faith there will be sun

knowing no other way.

The swelling of the source against the pressure of the earth

just when it feels like there is no room left, that life is too hard to live

something gives and there is


to stretch

to grow

the one and only chance to become whole.
