One Small Precious Flower - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Let us all fall in love & love one another
Let us all garden one small; precious flower
Let us all unearth a basic human need
Let us all plant one, special mustard seed.
Although it is less than other seeds on earth
All evolved to know and trust its, true worth
Didn't one such, special mustard seed stand tall?
Grow into a huge tree where the birds enthral.
Singing to us captivating even to those cruel
Didn't we all learn to love, childlike instinctual
Didn't we all know the white dove was a symbol?
Ah, our Lord was born in a stable small as a thimble?
Let us all fall in love & love one another
Let us all garden one small, precious flower
Let us all fall in love & love one another
Let us all garden one small, precious flower
Let us all unearth a basic human need
Let us all plant one, special mustard seed
Let us all give up this capitalist greed
Let us all plant a new moneyless seed.

    An amazingly beautiful, thoughtful and illuminating poem, Mark! I agree with you wholeheartedly, we must first of all take care of our basic human needs before we can evolve beyond corruption and greed of the few. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
