Ascending Seed

From oneness
With the mother plant
To stark darkness:
Sealed package

Suddenly
Light!
Filtering through
Wet paper towel

Still can’t see —
What’s out there?

Ooh,
Sprouting???

Ah.
Dark again
Different darkness, though
Feel nourishment and
Support
All around
Close

Mmmm…
More water, too

And a voice
Describing some beautiful
Flowering vine
I will become

Waving in the sun
Welcoming the bees

I cannot
Imagine it

For now
I will stretch
I will grow

I will wait
