moon seed

Updated on October 6, 2011


The smoke hovered away from her

like a ghost

as she exhaled into the night sky.

She knelt down

and dug up some earth

laying down her deepest secrets

for no one to find.

Surely the rain must have gone to her head

or to the darkest part of her heart.

Either way,

she felt more whole without the burden

than she had ever felt before.


Screaming without making a sound..


she buried with the secret a seed

to grow into a tree

absorbing her pain as it grew

and flowering the fruit of her truths

nurtured by the moonlight

and feeding off of tears.


It would one day

grow into something beautiful

and kiss deeper parts of her

that she never knew were there.

Oh to be a tree

rooted and powerful

helpless and beautiful

outstretched arms and rooted soul

wisdom of the old

and beauty of new

this is how the darken forrest deep within her was born.

      "Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind..." is the beginning of a great prayer contained in your meditation video. Your poem melds the natural with the supernatural. Great Hub. Thank you.

      How did I miss this? Lovely indeed your image of the soul within a tree. Or is it the tree within the soul of a woman or man? So much said in your words. Leave it to me to question everything. Very beautiful Steph.

      really liked this one. I like the idea behind it, to bury secrets and plant a tree over them. and it takes away the burden and pain of it. magical and majestic just like the beautiful oak tree that will grow from it.
