A Poem Unfolding Towards Revelation


It's just that
When a bud can no longer
Contain within itself
It expresses itself
In the form of a flower

It's just that
In a similar vein
Does the flower express itself
In the form of a fruit
And then the seed

All to realize its being
In its myriad forms!

    A great observation expressed in this poem. The image of bud to flower to fruit, to seed, can really apply to so many things in our world and in our life, especially our spiritual life. Thoroughly enjoyable poem. (Report) Reply
