  1. Meaningful poem, and I especially like the ending fantasy. Since we don’t know whether plants are conscious or not, it’s best to believe they are. Add a little witchery and kisses, dark, moistrue and conversation to have a potent charm. Bravo!

    • When in doubt… treat them with the same respect you’d want to be treated. That’s my motto. Okay, I just made that up, but it does describe how live so I guess it should count. 😀

    • I swear he still pouts sometimes. You know when toddlers figure out that you want them to do something, and that they can withhold it from you, so they do? Yep, that’s what he’s doing: 6 leaves in one year!

    • Inner craving, indeed… I’ve always wished people (all people) could feel close enough to trees to care for them as they might care for other sentient creatures. Maybe that way, they would be less destructive of them….

  2. I am not in the least surprised at your devotion to a seed, nor that it sprouted for you. You are a very special soul, Magaly.

  3. Love the fairy tale/fantasy feel to this….and then to find out that it’s true and there’s a real story behind it…..even better!!!

  4. I love the plant love in this, and your relationship to the earth–even in a pot. I have plants who I really feel are members of the family, as you obviously do here–and who cares if some mere people don’t get it? Your seed did, and that’s what counts. Loved this and the prompt, and hope to get back to it, but April is grinding my beans, as I may have mentioned at the coffee-prompt. ;_) Thanks for telling your seed’s life-history, also–fascinating.

  5. Very much enjoyed reading this. The seed was reluctant but at last it did sprout because the narrator works at it with such love and tenderness. The narrator displays tender and loving attitude, the seed displays the actions of the narrator; a beautiful picture.
