Flower seeds often look dead
They are dry and do not seem to move
Seeds donít appear to grow or stretch
Or breath, or look alive

Some seeds are eaten by birds
Other seeds become diseased and die
But, many seeds
Will drop into the soil and wait to germinate

If we could see what was going on
Inside that tiny flower seed
We would see leaves and even a root system
Being nourished, waiting for development

Sometimes seeds are blown into the desert by the wind
Sometimes seeds are dropped into the soil by birds
While other seeds are planted by the gardeners own hand
In gardens and parks all around the world

Healthy seeds will eventually sprout
When the conditions are just right for survival
With plenty of warmth, light and water
The germinating seeds will send a root into the soil

Green leaves will begin to form and stems will start to grow
Slowly, tiny blooms form, then open
And turn into beautiful flowers
That will adorn our gardens and parks all around the world

And so it is with spiritual seeds
Some become diseased and die
While others never see the light of day
While other seeds sprout and grow

Luke 8:15
And the seeds that fell on the good soil
Represent honest, good-hearted people
Who hear Godís word, cling to it,
And patiently produce a huge harvest.

This is a lovely rendition of the familiar parable. I could also see it as an allegory for a baby developing inside a uterus. It's a tad week on the topic because it's not exactly about a park but it is still a beautiful piece. I'm sure it will touch many hearts.

What a nice poem. I liked your description of the seeds. You did a really good job.

God Bless!
