Seeds by Sara Burn Edwards
Online - 22 June 2020
Seeds can be scattered
Seeds can be sown
Seeds can be saved and retained.
Seeds sown in the ground
May flourish and grow
Or scattered and wasted away
How do we know where our seeds will fall?
Seeds planted with love can bring joy and delight
With indifference, heartache, and fear.
So careful of your seeds, my friends
Be careful where they fall
They may come back and choke you
When grown straggly and tall.
The knowing look, the secret smile,
The sly insinuation
A seed of doubt dropped in an ear
Can kill reconciliation.
