The Wonder of a Seed

A seed is buried in dirt.

Unseen…in darkness….the seed cracks open… and life begins to grow…

“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.”- Cynthia Occelli

It seems this is often the way of life for us…

Out of darkness, struggle and what appears to be destruction….

New Life is coming forth…

The Seed Cracked Open- Hafiz

It used to be

That when I would wake in the morning

I could with confidence say,

”What am ‘I’ going to do?”

That was before the seed

Cracked open.

Now Hafiz is certain:

There are two of us housed

In this body,

Doing the shopping together in the market and

Tickling each other

While fixing the evening’s food.

Now when I awake

All the internal instruments play the same music:

”God, what love-mischief can

‘We’ do for the world  Today?

Cracked Seed

I’m an empty-nester mom from Franklin, Tennessee. I live with my husband of 25 years, Richard. I am blessed with friends and family who love me, encourage me…and talk me into doing stuff that scares me. Over the years I have shared my writings with them and they suggested I start this blog. So…. here it is. I offer it with one hand over my face, peeking through my fingers as I click on the word “publish” … hoping with all my heart you find something meaningful here. Mishelle Phillips
