Poem – Planting Seeds

by Janice Jacinto

planting seeds is a
reflection of a gardener’s soul
their roots, constant like the stars
wildly inter-weaved, we all are,
shining in between
the smiling irises.

savoring the taste of sun,
the last paint of rain.
flowers we are,
altogether, day and night,
planting what we feel
to the world.

life is summer…
growing beneath and above.
my dear, remember
to watch the sunrise
I promise you won’t
close your eyes.

petals that blow upon the wind,
kissing the midsummer sky.
for we are, and still are
flowers from concrete.
