Words on fertile ground

When words and ideas
Leave you,
And fly freely in the air,
They may land

Fertile ground;
Or they may land

Rocky ground;
It’s like seeds that are sown
In a farm;
Sown on fertile soil,
You are sure to reap
A good harvest;
But if sown on rocky ground,
You may have a famine;
The quality of your seeds,
And soil preparation
For planting
Thus determine your harvest;
In the same vein,
The words you send out
Into the world;
And the ears on which they land;
Determine the impact
They create.

If you so well coin your words
That they get straight
To other hearts,
And there take comfortable seats,
They will lift you to the sky.
