Seed Poems

Heidi Brown
Poems as seeds
       have needs
to germinate,
        to take root,
                 to push buds
                        into my
                                 conscious mind.
 
My poems,
       the seeds of my poems,
                need space.
 
Chaos,
         frenzied competition,
                will kill them
or
       keep them
                 deep
in the bottom of my mind
        waiting
for a quieter moment
        for space
                for them to grow.
