One Small Seed

baby lettuce

Not much to look at,

Not much to eat,

Nothing to brag of

When sharing a feat.

No tow’ring forest

With branches to show –

But she’s planting a Now

So her Future can grow.


We all start somewhere. We all start small.

If we sow a little kindness,

It could feed us all….

    Hi, Melody. I’ve been a long-time admirer of your creations, and bought your book as a gift for my wife. I’m compiling a collection of poems from many of my favorite poets that I plan to publish this year and would love to include some of your work in it. Please contact me at I’d love to discuss this project with you and provide details. It will include bios of poets, lists of their books, websites, blogs, etc. I hope to help many poets get their work published and help already-published poets create an even bigger fan base. Please also consider spreading the word about this opportunity.
    Thank you.

    How right you are! This would be a fun verse to read on a seed packet? Care to start a new trend?

  5. Lovely message, Melody. The seedling looks very healthy and promising.

  7. I’ve missed you lately. I hope all is well. Are you out puttering in the garden?

      Life has been BUSY and demanding – I have had to take a step back and haven’t had the time to write for what seems like an eternity! I am trying to squeeze in some garden time, in the midst of a demanding schedule – I am rather selfishly glad it has been a slow spring, because I would really resent the time away from my place of refreshing! Thanks, Charis. I am touched by your kindness in asking after me! πŸ™‚
