Seed or stone? Tomb or bloom? These are the questions…..

by Rod Smith

Please read the following stanza 4 or 5 times, preferably out loud.

O memory of painful time,

Are you seed or stone?

A dark and deadly tomb,

Or seed with life to bloom?

Only if I say, “I want you,”

Will I really know.”

(Poet Unknown)

I’m caught (enriched, inspired, motivated) by “seed or stone.” Will you, will I, respond to life-challenges and permit them to make us hard, angry, lifeless, indifferent – and be as stones?

Or, seed?

Tomb or bloom?

I’m choosing seeds.

What about you?
