Waiting

Prompt from Poetic Bloomings: fertilizing the soil; or out of something bad, something good

Barren seeds,
desolate of roots,
lonely for life-
so sorrowfully sown,
painfully planted
in autumn.

Winter cultivates
with penetrating cold,
winds of discipline;
springtime fertilizes
with overflowing rains,
buckets of tears.

In summertime,
blossoms of gratitude,
flowers of courage-
yet some remain
dormant, waiting
for next year.
