A-Z: Seeds

Scattered, like seeds
in an elusive breeze,
are moments.
Throughout life
we sow seeds—
putting down roots
to weather the storms
that blow in on
the winds of change.
We tend our lives
like gardens,
weeding out the chaff,
painful and stifling,
to harvest moments
ripe with sustenance,
in which to carry us
through inevitable
droughts of loneliness,
and inescapable flooding
recollections of regret.

~McGuffy Ann Morris

I have always related to the seasons. Their relevance to life is obvious to me. This is in part what drives my book, Weeds. You can find this poem there, too. Each season, every year, I assess myself and my life. Now, Spring brings renewal and growth. I look forward to the things it offers, knowing that I will need them later.

  1. Wonderful poetic analogy…..seeds are very much like moments in life…some take root and thrive and become positive and others wither in the heat struggling to survive – maybe THEY are really the strongest ones in their own way.

  2. So true but sometimes the garden of my life gets ragged looking from inattention because I spread myself too thin. Spring is always a time for renewal for me.
    Hugs, Julia


  3. Oh, yeah. I like this one, for sure. ~hugs~ I need to let go of old pain (just went on a rant about entitled brats in high school!). Let it go, Darla. ~shakes head~ Wait, that’s why I write, to channel ancient angst. Heh… Be well, my dear.
