The Seed

The seed


Has so much potential

And never knows it


Until it gets planted

It grows all seasons


Nights and days


It grows through the soil

It bursts through the soil

Like a firecracker


Bursting with color


Later on


It has a bud

Buds open up

To the sun and rain

And sun and rain


It opens up and seeds fall

Out of the bud that opened

And the cycle restarts


It’s called the circle of life.
