SLEEPING SEEDS, day 18 of A Month with Yeats

 

Day 18 of Jane Dougherty’s A Month With Yeats Challenge and today’s quote is: ‘The dews drop slowly and dreams gather’ —W.B. Yeats

Jane’s blog is: https://janedougherty.wordpress.com/2017/11/18/a-month-with-yeats-day-eighteen/

My poem is called: SLEEPING SEEDS

 

We are seeds in nesting

spread out over soil now slumbering,

still dreaming in the gentle light,

now resting under winter’s plight.

We are seeds in nesting

seeking solace from this winter solstice

under blade now balancing

the dancing dew. Seeds in nesting,

waiting to come through.

    This is so sweet and gentle. I’m reading this first thing in the morning, as I drink my coffee. It’s a nice hopeful thought to carry through the day, especially as it’s dark and raining, to think of those seeds slumbering. 🙂
