Dark seed

by LaurenK (writer), Sydney, December 14, 2011

Around an oak, rock and green grass

The seed of truth buried under the rather strange phenomenon of self-denial

They say there’s a seed buried eastward

Beneath the hills,

Hidden under dirt and snow

Dark, the seed that shall not grow

Truth written in the DNA

Of the thing that may decay

Will this seed bear fruit or weed?

Westward eyes prey to find

Answers frozen in a season of reason

One cannot retrieve

Without the seed of the East

On the river’s shore

The ebb and flow

Through the days and night

Might offer this frosted seed life

And light?

Nay darkness

Dark seed breathes

In heart and chest

Crowing above logic

It cannot be bought

So rest and accept

The seed must be grounded

Beneath the sun

around an oak, rock and green grass

Let the current of the river that flows from East to West

Lick up beside the seed’s soil

No need to toil or trouble

Let the seed show you what it is to be

For it offers the chance to see

A chance you must take

No promises, no guarantees

But let be free.

That's fabulous...Very rarely I have seen somebody who picks up truth written in DNA and measure same very truth with perplexity of life...Very thoughtful poem...Only you can say this...Keep it up Lauren
