Seeds – A Quadrille

Sow love and friendship giving seeds
Uproot energy stealing weeds

Nurture that which creativity breeds
Scale away all that negativity breeds

Grow roots that fulfill your needs
Show thankfulness for caring deeds

Follow paths that to growth leads
Sow hope and dream fostering seeds


Written for tonight’s Planting Seeds Quadrille prompt at dVerse.

  1. This is exquisitely drawn! I am so deeply moved by your words tonight especially; “Grow roots that fulfill your needs/Show thankfulness for caring deeds.” Yes! 💝💝💝

  2. I am no rhyming poet, but I toast those who can accomplish the deed. Nicely concocted, a series of lessons of living a life of decency, perhaps? Lovely stuff.

  3. I love how you brought the seed bank into this. Quite an image, and it’s mind-blowing that the future of the human race might reside in that small place…

  4. You drummed a great rhythm and rhyme into your quadrille, Helene, and I love the circularity, beginning with love and friendship and ending with hope and ‘dream fostering seeds’.
