To see things in the seed, that is genius - Lao Tzu

>> 17 September 2008

When you plant a seed

you do not know where it might lead.

Will it become a pretty bead?

Or will it grow into wild weed?

When you plant a seed

you do not know what it might need.

Will it know how to proceed?

Or will it grow up to exceed?

When you plant a seed

you will have to concede

that it will get its own feed

that it will grow at its own speed

(c) Mindful Mimi - September 2008

Thanks to for prompting this poem.

"The waiting for it to do its thing" part is the hardest! Like motherhood, it can be scary.

Spoken like a gardener. I can say I have had a few surprises along the way.

That is lovely...and a great reminder that we can plant the seeds and help to nurture them along the way, and they will grow (and learn) at their own pace.
