Doubt Turns to Miracle

Written for: Poetic Bloomings2, Prompt #434 – Going Old School

“We’re going back to the very beginning for this week’s prompt. With spring having to creep in, can garden blooms be far behind? Every garden starts with a seed. A small part of the big picture; a beginning. And so we begin at Poetic Bloomings.

The prompt for this Sunday reflects that idea. Write a “seed” poem. It could literally be a seed of a plant, of an idea that sparks a greater effort.”

Gifted with a packet
of sunflower seeds,
I look doubtfully
at them, picturing
height of my favorite

The seeds sprouted,
sturdy stalks grew
higher and higher.
Soon after round,
brown velvet heads
looked up at the sun.
