Poem of the Week 26

Unfinished Poem

Barrie Wade

 

Here is the tiny seed.

Drop it from your palm.

Cover it with earth.

 

Here is the tender shoot

breaking through warm soil.

Water it with love.

 

Here is the slender stalk

Moist with morning dew.

Shelter it with care.

 

Here is the velvet bud

folded in itself.

See its slow unfurling.
Here is the fragrant flower

Open to the bees.

Watch their happy visiting.

 

Here is the shrivelled pod

rattling in cold wind.

Wait for the shell to split.

 

Here is the tiny seed.
