Planting Seeds
Kelly Murphy Moreton


I've planted a lot of seeds in my lifetime
Some take root
some wither

Some you wish for
some you simply forget

You can't predict the outcome
but you can plant the seed
and you can hope
and you can want

I've planted a lot of seeds in my lifetime
and still it amazes me
that one can never predict
which will grow and flourish

Yes, this poem is a seed. I just wrote about a significant person in my life who planted a seed for my writing. The word �seed� keeps showing up lately.

Great metaphor, as Jayne says in her introduction to this poem.

Goes to show you don't ever know"-Robert Hunter. This poem is a seed. I can already feel it bursting open within. I can't wait to see what appears above ground.
