In, Seeds in the Wind, I watch them day after day like fading flowers under a fall season. Crumble, shrivel into pieces.
They’ve fallen back to the place where they’ve come from, below a surface. In, Seeds in the Wind, It seems the seasons have stolen their vibrancy. It seems life has torn them piece by piece. Some survive, thrive with every sense of being, while others fade into the memories of yesterday.

Seeds in the Wind
I stand here.
Like I’m the center of a flower
opened to other people.
Laughing, winding themselves around stems.
Some have the brilliance of people
I’d see in the city. Others only belong.
When I look into your eyes,
I see myself of where I might go.
So far I am a seed in the wind.
I’ve burst from myself.
I’ve fed on the soil of my roots.
I flutter in the breeze with others.
Still the laughter.
Still winding against dying stems,
faded under a lowering sun.
Plucked for something temporary
in glass and water.
They have green leafy faces
that dry like the dead.
They curl and shrivel like
Empty beneath their surface.
Empty like the seed pod
hollow of nothing.
They have saturated brown endings;
I don’t know what I am going to do with them.
They’re fading by choices of the poet.
Faded as if the poet were writing for us.
But, hoping to be penned for something more.
Conception, evolution, and growth.
