Under the ground the seed awaits
For the warmth of the sun upon its head.
Waking from peaceful slumber
To break free and push past its constraints.
Stretching now toward the nourishing light,
Changing and growing into a new form
Soon to show the world the beauty that has lain dormant
Now unfettered-a true celebration!

I wrote this poem in spring 2012, when I was starting my vegetable garden. Seeds have always mesmerized me as they have everything in their small capsule to make a plant, flower and fruit. Quite a miracle that little seed.
The pictures here are of seeds I started indoors, last winter and spring. They were planted out when the weather was warm enough. And I will be planting seeds directly in the garden soon when the weather warms, and the garden season starts again.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog, and Sanaa@A Dash of Sunny for her Prompt Nights every Friday. This week’s theme is spring, and our views about the season.
A perfect way to start off spring is to read RURAL’s spring issue. I am honored to be contributing again to this amazing online magazine, the creation of Jen@The Light Laughed. I hope you will drop by and read all the amazing articles….and best of all it is free.
I leave you with a few additional words about seeds waiting to grow. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
