Seeds
God knits threads of herself into every one
Just in case one lands in the right place
Seeds of love, equality, beauty, creativity, prosperity, generosity
Cast them to the wind
Johnny Appleseed, Miss Rumphius
Ladybird’s wildflowers
Seeds rise to the sun in defiance of repression
Push me down, go ahead
This only bolsters germination and my roots dig deep
The proverb that says
They tried to bury us
But they didn’t know we were seeds
I’m a seed
And I plant them, too
Every song is a seed
Planted in the lush wilderness of young minds
They take hold
Rooted and galvanized in fiery synapse
Bear fruits of love, equality, beauty, creativity, prosperity, generosity
Make it sow
