Snapdragon Seeds - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Dried pod from summer’s brilliance
Among dozens in a paper bag
Stored hopefully, through winter’s quiescence

Opened gently, with human hands
Spilling out on a clean, white platter
Scores of flea eye sized seeds
Sprinkle and scatter
Like freshly ground pepper

Dusted atop soil filled pots
Delicately dampened and set on a sill
Snapdragon seeds become snapdragons again

Topic(s) of this poem: flowers, hope, life, love, memory, nature, rebirth

    Perfect! I set out searching for the signs of Spring, just as the tarnish of snow finally fades. I love the first crocus I come across. Validation that Spring dates not miss her date to dance! May your seeds sprout beautiful snapdragon! PEACE (Report) Reply
