Grow grow

Grow in the seeds
the grow is seeded
as the seed comes.

Girl in the grow
the girl is gone in the seeds
as the seeds grow.

Watering the girl
has grown the girl
now she goes to be in the water.

Elva it was truly wonderful to reconnect after all that has gone by over these many years. Kathy and I kept repeating to each other that, it seems like only yesterday since we viewed one another and spoken to each other. Your children are great, your sister and family are too, and your Mom has not changed a bit.
We love you all,
Sherman& Kathy

Good morning, noticed your comment on my blog. New Mexico hey, been there, done that. Well, been everywhere. Not everywhere, but 49 states and half of Canada. Now I'm a nester.

Some nice places there though, if you stay with small places. Interesting poem, yes, grow, learn. Not easy on this planet where they raise you teaching you so much stupid stuff though.

Happy paths, may you travel and experience many of them. If one doesn't feel right back out and try another.

hey,

I noticed your comment on my blog, and am appreciative. Where'd you see my blog?

On another note I like your blog; poetry adds to people's ability to maintain/build Critical Thinking Skills!

I love Your Brown Bear Photo. I have family in Northwest that live among the Grizzly, Wolves, and Black Bear. It's to late this season, but next summer if you like, then I can give you directions on a Spirit Man that has made friends with all the bears of the area. You really can feed them, and spend time with bears; I gained spiritual insight doing it. I have a picture of my bro' feeding them on my site; a few posts down.

staying afloat can be tricky at times..
but if the growing was good..
then she will be strong in the water.

loved the way we turn and turn in this cycle of growth... and aren't we on this planet just to grow?

OK, it almost seems like a riddle...
So, I'll venture to guess.

A water lilly?

Life force is what I see. Developing and becoming one.
Much to look at here, askance.

Thank you all for the kind comments.

boneman, a water lilly of a real girl actually. But it does make a good riddle.

goatman,
I don't know any way to look at things other than askance.

Thanks for coming by and commenting. I figured this must have been a short and very nice piece about a girl coming of age.
