Evolution is a bird that dropped her seed in my soul

written 2/28/12, only just bold enough to post:

Evolution came to visit one day

The baby was sleeping

and out of the quiet

she lurched me from my loneliness

Upward and upward

Until I had a new view

and in that moment

a grand promise was planted in my soul.

But I did not know what to do

For the soil in my soul

was dry

and could nourish no seed

Yet there it sat

with its seduction

of becoming

And I could not bear

the potential

knowing I was not living it.

I did not know what to do.

But a seed

it does not think

it knows what to do

All I had to do

was sit with it

I did not have to think

I did not have to fix my life

I only had to follow the promise

of my seed.
