Nurturing the Soul

verdant sprouts shoot forth from the freshly quenched earth. All welcome the rebirth and rising of souls. Archaic walls crumble. Who knows the true worth of faith, no pretenses, of waning control? An unnamed blessing, we cast off our burdens, to emerge from sleep behind opaque curtains. Rain nurtures the tender seedlings beneath soil. With light, dusty land will bear fruit from our toil.

    A frequently spied occurrence, the replenishing of souls within the Earth! While we cast our burdens, it seems we wake behind opaque curtains! What a wonderful combination of lines, I paraphrased them! You did wondrous with this poem! Great Work!!
