Silver Sphere






A silver sphere of seeds
feels the first faint breath
of a morning breeze.
 
Waits patiently for
the afternoon wind,
or the bump
of a rabbit's foot,
or the brush
of a fox's tail;
to release these
showy, silken
parachutes
into time.

A launch 
of hope,
and faith,
carried
into the future.
