Faith in Seeds – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

IMG_0945
I live as gardener
to your dreams yet to come

listening for the tender seeds
sprouted new or just planted warm

reminding you not to step on
fragile seedlings behind your feet

kneeling to show you their worth
weeding away your anxiety

clearing the way so you can see
small beginnings still there

offering gentle reminders
to look for new tips breaking ground
and compare them to last week’s arrivals

assisting with watering
during these times of drought
while waiting for blossoms together

  1. Ali, I adore the metaphors in this poem, particularly how our dreams are carefully nurtured seeds and the notion that we can all blossoms together, so lovely, such wonderful sentiment 🙂 I notice that you have written other impressive motivational poems this month in April, including another favourite of mine ‘No Explanation Needed’. I have an inspirational poetry journal called “Auroras & Blossoms Poetry Journal” that has just published its third issue and we are running a special NaPoWriMo Anthology issue for inspirational poems written in NaPoWriMo 2020. If you are interested in submitting any of the wonderful poems of yours that I just mentioned above (including Faith in Seeds) into our NaPoWriMo Anthology for publication then you can find more details below. We are also open to regular submissions all year round as well for inspirational poetry submissions.
