As Ye Sow...

Like ivy clinging greenly,
climbing deftly up a wall,
tendrils curling, twirling looking for a place to grasp--
another day, another inch...

Like mint, with taproot running,
shooting off to spread, further, ever further,
a taste of peppermint airborne--
another week, another garden...

Like daffodils left to redouble
their redoubling until a field of gold
is sightly treasure--
another month, another dancing field...

Or even, like dandelions, when yellow ages to puffs
of feathered down;
wind hovered to all compass points--
another season, another neighborhood...

so too, even a pip of philanthropy
or a kernel of kindness
sown in random manner
will spread like dandelions--
flowering in the most unexpected places.
