Summer Song


I was happy to be sown,
and I’m even happier to bloom,
but I still recall the warmth
of that little girl’s hand

and the wind, and what it did.

What would it do, Erin, if you were a seed?

Janice said...

Has the wind blown that little seed far away from others of it's kind William? May it take root and grow strong wherever the wind plants it...

Near or far, happy, sad, that same kind of bitter-sweet feeling you referred to yesterday when you posted your old photo....
