Hidden Seeds

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Poetics:  Mooning Around
(posted by sarahsouthwest)

"I want you to think about the October full moon and take inspiration from the different names it’s been given in different places."

"I’d like you to choose one of these moon names, and write a moony poem inspired by it:

.Gopher Looks Back
.Seed Fall
.In Ivy

Seeds fall and scatter
into the earth.  You
cannot see them 
until they spring up 
into crops, flowers, 
fruit.  They ripen 
under an October full moon.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I like, Sara. Your write reminded me of the Eucalyptus plant that sprung out beside a bedroom window at our house. We didn’t know the seed was planted, perhaps the bird or varmint didn’t know either that it was a carrier. Its flowers are a pretty pink.

    Beautiful poem Sara


  4. Yes, there ate cycles of life we don’t even see. Let’s hope for a good harvest.

    There’s more going on underneath the earth then I’m sure you and I understand Sara the miracle of growth from seed is always fascinated me. Fact is all growth fascinates me, it’s some kind of proof for some kind of miracle. Enjoy this poem well written my friend.

    A beautiful poem Sara. I am always amazed that seeds and bulbs seem to know just the right time to germinate and spring forth.
