Germinated Seed

From Ann Glover O’Dell’s Midwifing the Soul:

A germinated seed


and pushing through brown loins


to the greening wonder.

Second leaf set

manifests the tell-tale traits

of parent plant

and stem grows taller into stalk.

Wind and drought and sometimes too much rain

bend and break and cause disfiguration.

But somehow sensing essence

we know ourselves to be

this tree of life

and  hope to bear good fruit

from roots’ deep reach

into primordial soil.

  1. This poem gives me the thought of new life being born out of the depths of the earth to have new beginnings in life. If something isn’t planted, watered, and taken care of, it will not grow and reproduce, but when everything is done right, things grow as they should to become strong, vibrant, and full of life. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.
