The Seeds of Change


There are some who work
they plant in the soil,
to feed and nurture the young.
In the ground warm and ready
prepared for the season,
knowing the sun will come.

How does the acorn know
it’s to become the living oak?
How can a passion within us
expressing its all in a rapture,
complete the circle of living,
create life from ashes and dust?

Will is the reason for being,
and is the one measure we miss.
When we reach out into the night
looking to answer the longing,
of how we could have begun
in a word that became a light.

There is never a place outside
where we can find the garden,
or know how the seed can become,
the flowers of reason unfolding.
Asking questions while knowing inside
we are all just a part of the one.

One thought that begets all creation
in a place we’ve already been.
And searching for all that is true
is the answer to all of the longing.
Planted before we remember,
seeds of change we forever knew

  1. “One thought that begets all creation…” A most powerful line – but then I love EVERY line in this poem! “Planted before we remember….” yes!

    (Synchronicity – I posted a poem earlier tonight with almost the same photo… we must’ve been musing in the same forest.)

  2. we seem to always want definitive answers and ponder “why”. Sometimes it is enough to know “it just is” and admire the mystery of it all. You wrote what I’ve often thought. It’s a beautiful tapestry.

  3. “Planted before we remember,
    seeds of change we forever knew”

    This is so very perfect a way to talk about the Alpha and the Omega nature of our souls, of our one great connected soul.

  4. Such insightful lines. “Will is the reason for being, and is the one measure we miss.” I love the last line, “Planted before we remember, seeds of change we forever knew” Lovely thought that we span eternity. Such possibility.
