This is a poem I wrote a few years ago called Sowing Love, about the nuturing beauty of how we love and how that reveals itself. On a personal level it is very appropriate again, given my renewed obsession in growing plants and the forest of baby herbs this has created. When it comes down to it, caring for a seed really is a great allegory for love, and not just the romantic kind. Happy Valentines Day!
Love is filling the pot
Preparing the ground
Letting invigorating water flow
The Sun's sweet light to glow
Love is willing growth to happen
Nuturing and caring
Time and energy sharing
Love is joy
Awe in development
In every phase
Love never decays
Love is planting the seed
Tasting the fruit
To create and build
The highest potential fulfilled
Love is all.
