GloPoWriMo#30B-We Are Seeds

Seeds by The Oneness

Death is no race or ride

or wild release.

No matter how deeply they bury us,

our spirits are seeds

traveling across infinite galaxies

to cross pollinate new species.

Our fruits multiplied with

each blossoming spring.

We are the storage

for all that went before us.

Death is another chance for

for release –

to share our masterpieces,

to germinate,

to breed.

GloPoWriMo#30: Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a palinode – a poem in which you retract a view or sentiment expressed in an earlier poem. I thought it would be fun to double down on this idea and retract not only my previous poem, but tonight’s poem as well. Tonight’s musings: Death is a Pendulum Ride and my earlier work: The Final Breakaway

Oh, April. It’s been such good fun. I’m always glad to see you arrive and to see you reach a satisfying end.
