#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

Seeds of Late Summer Marsh

Seeds of Late Summer Marsh

A Quiet Revolution. . . .

When we notice, carefully observe, and actively follow the way plants live, they become part of us. We learn not only about them but from them. In this sense plants become our teachers. We meet life in the plant and this life can light up in us and increasingly inform the way we interact with the world. . .
— Craig Holdrege, Thinking Like A Plant

Under clouds breaking blue 

rooted in mud, intermingling

with cattails and pepperbush

these seeds I am holding

my necessary, a mystery

why must I belong
