I Planted A Seed

I planted a seed

Hoped it would grow

But whether it would

I didn’t really know.

I planted in the sun

Prayed it would rain

For days held vigil

Came again & again.

Soon I wearied watching

Other interests prevailed

That little seed took root

The sun & rain never failed.

I planted a seed

A difference I made

Others who followed

Repose in the shade.

The proud, the profiteers, and the powerful seem most concerned with their legacy, what people will say of their great deeds and accomplishments after they have passed. The wise in all their doings and musings know that even the simple and humble hope also to leave something of themselves behind.

Instead of sowing fear, hate, and division which grow like wildfire and consume and destroy not only the trees, but the whole environment, let us sow seeds of love, joy, peace, kindness, and understanding so that generations as yet unborn will remember that we left something truly worthwhile behind.

Your friend and fellow traveler,

David White
