Garden In A Weed

We plant the seeds
from the fruit we are.
Some, in fertile dirt beds,
others, wind born spillage,
in gutters and cracks.
Raindrops and sun
nurture weed and flower;
does God prefer the one,
over the other?

Nice to hear your voice again. I'm mulling over that title.

jel said...

polona said...

this is a wow! as far as i'm concerned. interesting title...

tongue in cheek said...

good to hear you again!
I think God prefers you.

JaneDoughnut said...

Excellent. I think the spillage is necessary. Not everyone who needs your influence will be in your garden.

Don Iannone said...

So true,and so poetic. Nice one!

trinitystar said...

No definately not! In God's eye we are all equal ... even those in the flower bed.
Lovely sweet unfolding poem.
:o)

Joyce said...

Yes, the poem says it so well.

Russell Ragsdale said...

The energy of life around the area of reproductive success is so awesome. Good one Pat!

Borut said...

Perhaps, the answer lies in 'A Garden of Fire!?:)

floots said...

Bill said...

Another weed heard from . . .

Don Iannone said...

Another thought on this one...God has no preference since God is all things.

donna said...

title caught my attention !

Pris said...

I like this, Pat!

gautami tripathy said...

Actually I think HE prefers one over the other.

But then KARMA to plays a role...

steve said...

in a weedless world,
the flowers would have to compete with each other for preferred seeding

Tim S said...

I vote for equality too!

Masago said...

Very good question...the diligent gardener versus the sloppy drifter.

Why Corey then He really does love weeds!! Thank you!!

Jane, you are right. Thank you!!

Thanks Don!!

I think so. Thanks Trinitystar!!

Thanks Joyce!!

Thanks Russell!!

Borut, hadn't thought of that. Perhaps it does.

Floots, you ain't alone. Thank you!!

Bill, there are plenty of us weeds.

Don, I think it is "us" who ascribe the labels.

Thanks Donna!!

Thank you Pris!!

Which would that be Gautami??

Thanks Inconsequential!!

Steve, can't have one without the other. We live in a world of contrasts.

Tim, is that a hanging chad I see with your vote??

Vaughn, never thought of myself as sloppy.

Thanks Cathy. Odoe hasn't been working lately.

Thanks Andrew!!

dsnake1 said...

WOW!

(and equality for weed & flower.)

Vagabond said...

Good question. According to lore, God doesn't prefer one over the other-- the real question is, does man?

Nea said...

Grandma used to say, weeds are only flowers that no one wants, I suppose the same might be said of people........who god prefers, well he does seem to shine a little brighter on some than others, now doesn't he........

tongue in cheek said...

You are the not a weed in my garden, and certainly not a weed in paradise either!
