The Seed’s Wishes


I wish I’d grow up a lovely tree,

You would sit under my cool shade

To rest your weary body.


I wish I’d grow up a healthy tree,

Bear fruits and nourish you

I’d give myself entirely.


 I wish I’d grow up a sturdy tree,

People would build houses from my branches.

Your refuge, I would be glad to be.


 I wish I’d grow up a seasoned tree,

Bridges and light posts will rise from me.

I’d be along the road to light your way.


I wish I’d grow up a fine tree,

Pages would be made from my fibers ~

Books, letters, notes, songs , poetry.


 I am a seed for the moment,

Wishes, and dreaming of a full life

The morning will change me.


I wish I’d grow up a parent tree.

Thousands of seeds would spring from me.

Seeds metamorphose to homes of love.



I will be your shelter, eternally.

    The seed is one of my favorite metaphors. It could say a lot about life, of dreaming, and our human nature to grow. I’m glad you saw what I’m trying to picture in this piece.

    I wish you well.
