seeds

sometimes
people give me
seeds of wisdom
that make no sense
to me
(yet).

i (try to)
tend them
while seeking
the right place
to plant them
so they
grow
well.

usually i hold
each seed
for months,
even years,
before i know
where (and
how) to
plant
it.

last wednesday,
someone handed me
a seed, and i thought,
“huh. i think i know
what to do
with this.”

(spoiler:
nope!)

then, on friday,
only two days
later,

i found
exactly
where to
plant
that
seed,
and i was
grateful.

without that seed,
i might have
breathed fire
instead of planting
what may
someday
become
a flower

sometimes,
maybe, i ought
consider not
breathing fire,
instead
setting aside
space in my garden
until i’ve found
just the right
seed for
planting
there

    Deborah,

    That wispy bit of fire that swirls in my throat will now be my cue to open some space 😉

      RR,

      I took that approach all save once this week. I feel much better those times than the one time I diverged!

      Sometimes it won’t work, I suppose, but I’m glad to have the idea for re-peespectiving when needed. 🙂

    It can be so easy to have a knee-jerk reaction – I’m working on just finding space, as well – and it feels good! Lot less energy wasted on my part! Loved this one today!

      That’s exactly it–a lot less energy wasted on my part! It feels so good to ask myself, “Do I want to take this bait?” and immediately find a resounding, “Naaaaaaah.”
