A Severe Mercy

Of all the seeds which fall,

Catch this one beneath the soil.

 

Beneath the soul

Where darkness blinds.

 

Where darkness binds

A willing confinement.

 

A willing refinement

Until the shell breaks open.

 

Until the shell breaks upon

To push up and down.

 

To push up around

The stem and the roots.

 

The stem and the truths

Of all the seeds which fall,

 

Even one.

  1. Thanks for the reminder that spring plants are waiting. I went to the Grand Rapids Home and Garden Show yesterday with my friend Annette and the spring flowers all around were beautiful. We smelled the fragrances of daffodills, hyacinths and tulips. I loved it.

Thanks for your time and thoughts.
