experiential garden

Poem inspired by young calligrapher, singer & songwriter, Samara Ribbens.



seed must crack for sprout to grow

bulb buried deep sends roots below

sepals stretch for blossom to show

rain must fall so green life can flow

hope for harvest gain, in pain we sow

such tearful truth we shall die to know!

    Seedtime and harvest…just used that foundational verse in a WWII novel I’m writing. The rhythms of nature steady us on our journeys! Thanks.
