Time Witnessed



source

The seed

Dropped into the heart

Time witnessed

How it writhed

Squirmed and was torn

In silence

Then burst forth

In stem, blooms and thorn

A joy in lines was born

  6. Often love encounters many obstacles so as it grows the couple establish a defence system to defend each other! That is how it should be.

  7. I very much like the point of view you have shown here - Time as witness to our writhing...

  8. I love the wholeness of this poem: how it brings forth "blooms and thorns", not just the pretty bits.

  9. There is much to be learned of time that we can learn from the farmer, one that understands the land and the natural rhythms of it. And that there is a tearing down that leads to growth. A fundamental change.

  11. One thing about seeds -- they can't be stopped from sprouting. I also think about the saying "what you reap, you will sow" for some reason.

  18. This is artfully done, Summa. A wonderful, complex metaphor is so few lines takes real skill.

  26. The satisfaction to see something bloom helps to walk through the bud to bloom process, which can be taxing at times....Awesome write!
