seeds fall in the ground.
more than it was when it fell into the ground.
words fall in the soul.
more than it was when it was first spoken.
seeds become trees.
trees become forests.
forests can be scary.
they have no sunshine.
we get lost in them.
we’re overwhelmed by monsters & ghouls.
some people spend a lifetime lost.
some spend a lifetime trying to chop down a single tree.
hoping for a ray of sunshine.
some plant new seeds.
a new forest coming to life.
forcing ancient trees to die & fall & rot away.
flowers blooming at their feet.
fruit & birds in their branches.
perhaps if we are aware that words are seeds, we will be more careful with what we sow.
for what we say, will become.
may love be on your lips.
may kindness be on your tongue.
may it fall from you.
