death and life….

a seed falls,

giving itself to the ground,

no insisting on clinging to life here,

this is the natural way of things,

only death can bring new life,

the seed lies broken open now,

and the ground embraces it…


but I am not a seed,

how do I embrace this pattern?

I am required to let go?

If so how?

If so what?


I lay these questions as prayers,

still alive, still alive,

how do I die


shall I take the fall,

embrace the earth?

dust I am, to dust I will return,

but will I rise,

is it even my place to ask this?


a seed falls,

giving itself to the ground

no insisting on clinging to life….

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
