Make yourself a seed

Updated: Dec 20, 2020

Make yourself a seed.

Drop to your knees to reclaim your beginning.

Furl yourself back to potential.

Be small again.

Tight. Curled. Waiting.

A concentrated point of matter

ready for the fire

or the gentler signals

of season, soil, rain.

This is no metaphor. Drop down now!

The sun needs you to remember

what you began as—

what everything began as.

Fold your legs beneath you

and bow your back.

Rest your forehead on the ground,

eyes closed, hands open,

and listen.

Something will stir your cells

to tell you Yes.


It’s time.
