2015.08.10: the reluctant seed

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. – 2 Cor 9:6

i am sorry, Lord
i have sowed sparingly
fearful of failing among
the proliferating weeds
i refrained from sowing
all that you have given

forgive me, Lord
i understand now
this is the last season
there will not be another
i have emptied the barn
all has been gathered
and sown …


“Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.” = Jn 12:24

all that is left now
the first and last seed
come holy breath
you’ve brought me here
so many years ago
come take me now
to my resting place
