The Tiniest Seed

Updated on April 21, 2017

Great nations born from small beginnings,

And over time, through the ages may grow.

Getting their starts, origins, from a tiny star,

Becoming a virtual giant in a universe, afar.

Just ask a steward named John Appleseed,

if just one small gem to become a success.

As he walked the country planting his own,

Building orchards of apple trees, to impress.

A seed of knowledge to be so lovingly placed,

Within every child, their most precious minds.

Then each so possesses, forever, and a day,

A lasting hope, and is a heartfelt tie that binds.

By their own decisions, the seeds are cared for,

Now, as each one is being nourished very well.

Soon produces such a vast wealth of knowledge,

Giving time for all to grow up, a chance to excel.

The seeds of our earth and every creature in it,

All had the same origins, as a likened beginning.

The tiniest seeds planted by the creator's hand,

Nourished in finest soils to fruition, as intending.

Each planet to be seeded, solar systems, in kind,

About their stars, ever turning, a formation, lined.

The universe, in all its glory, an origin of all's story,

A roughened seed, polished diamond, has shined.

      I so enjoyed the multiple reference points you created using a seed as your focus. Each one added to the message but there was no ducplication. Very nice work.

      A thought provoking poem.

      We all have some thoughts, that find roots and grow up strong. They change our course of life. We can find them by deep meditation.
