I wanted to share this poem with Real Toads for the Tuesday Platform because it is a message that all of us need and deserve to hear. I'm not much of a person for religion, but I do believe that we "reap what we sow" sort of speak. Please pass this poem down and make our world just that much brighter.
|"Faith in the Seeds" from CN Life Ministries|
A spot of soil from the earth does spring
A curled and tucked in seed it brings
Cupped in our hand and cradled softly
Gently swayed and rocked into the dirty
To be sprayed down with aqueous care
And in the mist spurts a elegant vine affair.
A seedling reaching up into the clouds
Searching far and wide for fertile growth
Sprouting leaves like branches of a tree
One day reaching further into the sky
As long as a drought doesn't befall
Upon this fertile ground it called home.
Together our will sleeps with the seeds
For in their eyes sparkle the lost wisdom
Their vines reaching out for the poor
Quenching the thirst and hunger that pains
All of the this earth that trembles so easily
Quake in the moment of hushed adversity.
Thought for the Reader: Plant a seed for someone that you care for, and let the future look just that much brighter.
