The Patience of a Seed

Roth Poetry

IMG_3308 (2)

The patience of a seed lies in waiting
Knowing that at the opportune time
It will germinate, push out a root, and grow.
Too much sun will dry it up;
Too much rain will drown it // make it rot;
And, soil too hard will not let it take root;
Only when the combination of soil, light, and moisture
Is perfect will it grow and produce leaves and fruit.
*
Our life is much the same // waiting
For the opportune time to grow and shine.
The difficulty is always in the waiting;
Avoiding the scorching light of flattery and praise
Don’t get carried away by the storms of life
Take root in the rich soil of people who love you
Be patient // like a seed… humble and strong;
You’ll know when your time has come.

Once the seed of faith takes root…..

Only when the seed of faith roots in the good soil it shall be able to grow stronger and bring forth multiple fruits.

Once the seed of faith takes root 
it cannot be blown away 
even by the strongest wind. 
Now that’s a blessing.

– Rumi
