The Seed

The Birch

the seed

dead and buried

slowly

throws off the decay

sprouts new life

to thrust through the soil

for air

for light

for life

becoming what it is

destined to be

flowering in beauty

bearing fruit

to nourish

all living creatures

One thought on “The Seed

  1. RICH! I think we’re in the “dead buried” phase – but it’s hopeful!
