The Soil of Life
Within myself I hide a seed
that is buried deep beneath
the soil of life a consuming weed
Nurturing simple delicate ways
protects the shell that covers
and grows with an external haze
Longing to climb as a morning glory vine
to reach new heights of knowledge brings
soul contentment to the mind that's mine
Wildly consume all there is to know
storing images that are in my garden
as my future adventures grow...
outside my seed of capture
