Seeds, Roots and Shoots

“Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.” – Theodore Roethke

“The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” – Bertrand Russell

The ground is hardening.
Ice is forming on the lakes.
Dormancy is on the doorstep.
Seeds that have been planted rest in the dark.
In due time, transforming to roots followed by shoots.
The work is done in the preparation, in the waiting.
Let the work of winter be done.
Spring is always the outcome.

“Your heart is full of fertile seeds, waiting to sprout.” – Morihei Ueshiba
