Sowing Seeds

Each year, in spring, I remember days of the past
When we started our family, how we made it last

Looking through the window, out across the fields
Wondering if rains will  come, to increase my yield

We plan for our baby and needs for the coming fall
To plant more or less, should I wait, hoping to recall

Speaking with the Father, I put my mind at peace
Remembering past years, what I should increase

With work, in the ground, your left with only hope
Look at the morning sky, will I smile or mope

That day the clouds arrive and the cool spring rain
We dance for joy, crops fed, relieving all the strain

    Couldn't agree with you more Joe but, from what I see in today's world it may be a lost art. I see people not taking the time to enjoy what right in front of them, not realizing what their missing. Maybe I'm getting old, have a great day

    God supplies the needs when they arise. He sends the rain and sunshine and causes the plants to grow. Never a need we have that He doesn't already know. Good poem.
