Unless the Seed Falls Into the Ground

Rose Campion

We learn one lesson from the seed that diamonds have never taught us.
For seeds, unlike diamonds, are for spending, for throwing away, almost.
For unless the seed falls into the ground,
lying buried in the darkness of the earth for due season,
there can be no spring nor harvest.
The image of the seed is the living message of truth for all of us;
that death of some kind is the cause of all renewal.
~Graham Howe

    Thank you. Rose Campion, very pretty colour, there is a big patch of them in the back yard, they spread nicely and look gorgeous through their short life.
