Seedling… by Toni L.A. Cross

 

Impatiently stirring in darkness

a seed in the womb of the earth

stretching and yearning and slowing unfurling

searching and searching for light

 

Casting off the veil of its seedhood

shedding the skin of its youth

budding and bursting and suddenly thirsting

searching and searching for light

 

Knowing not what it might be

caring not where it might sprout

growing and reaching and rapidly moving

searching and searching for light

 

Thrusting itself towards the heavens

bare newborn covered in dew

hoping and dreaming and artlessly scheming

searching and searching for light

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
