Sow seed

I sow one seed - just one.
More are better I once meant,
but full of expectation impetuously I got lost.
Now I have sworn mindfulness and patience to myself.

Gratefully I speak the great name,
for the granted opportunity.
Mindfully nurture only one seed,
with pure intent and ready now.

Patiently I nourish it with all my love,
I look around attentively and vigilantly.
Touched, I receive the first sprouts,
silently singing of the mystery.

See growth slowly circling around me,
life spirals upwards.
Marvel at the transformation that I am promised,
Step by step it unfolds.

Gratefully I look at my life,
in new splendour every day shines.
I can confidently surrender to the seed,
love nourishes what may come.

Grateful I am, without words,
who knows how long I am.
The future is already knocking at my door,
wraps everything with meaning.

I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my soul.


A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
