Take a seed 
Plant it into the ground
And Let it be!

There is no need
For you and me the seed
Something to Teach 
It knows how:
Roots to grow,
A trunk to develop
Branches to extend    
Flowers to bloom
Fruits to bring forth 
And new seeds to

You and I, my friend,
Like seeds of Nature
Special seeds endowed 
With soul 
All wisdom inside us is,
Enclosed by nature  
Waiting to be found 
By thought
Outside us we shouldn’t expect
Many answers to find
The answers, we are looking for, 
Buried are deep down in our
Slumbering minds, 
Each of them waiting, 
By us 
To be discovered!

    These are very wise word that are written here. I like the way you compared us to seeds. I never thought of myself that way. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Thank you my dear Lucilla. You see, you are as wise as I and I as wise as you, the difference however lies in the degree of which we have discovered our wisdom!
