Sowing New Seeds

I am planting a new crop
I no longer want to harvest
Sorrow pain guilt or shame

My new catalogue arrived
Full of exciting possibilities
And I placed my order

In due course the seeds arrived
Joy abundance peace prosperity
And carefully with full attention
I pricked them out
Green-housed them watered them
Waited in anticipation for them to grow

Sure enough tender green shoots appeared m90047_GYGG-Grow5
Ready to be planted out
In full and glorious sun

I have turned and mulched the soil
And lovingly introduced them to the earth
With enough space to grow and stretch
With no risk of of crowding or competition

I weed from time to time
Removing anything in danger of impeding
Full strong healthy growth

But in reality it is nature that does the work
While I look on and wait…
