The Giant Seed

entry picture

Hope lies at peace on your pillow,

Giant, sleeper, keeper of the seed.

A foetus in suspension then freed,

They heard your life's first cries,

And watched you rise from child

To man, rejoicing the day we

Established ties, starting the cycle 

Again, giving the seed a home, to

Create new life, new blood from stone.

The miracle of life? Indeed!

From seed a giant, from giant a seed.

Hi Hazel, thank you for reading and for your good question, but, no, the picture did not inspire the poem, I just thought it looked a good match! Thanks again, Paul

Great images. I love the accompanying picture too. Did the picture inspire the poem?

I like this Paul, and I like that the pic has two giant seed heads firing off their futures. Well written.
