And more urgent than ever.
Thanks Ben, I was being too frivolous. There’s something quite dynamic about the seed, of course…
Yes, I thought that. And you are quite right about the power enfolded within a seed, for better or worse.
Then again, tomorrow never knows. As the Beatles once sang.

And tender care.
By ourselves , and if we are lucky by others too.
And so we must fiercely protect those seeds… And keep away the bull-dozers. A succinct and powerful poem, Ben.
Thank you, Betty. Mindfulness, always, that is the aim.
With mindfulness there’s no such thing as the mundane.
One of its many benefits. 🙂
