Seed (I Thank You)

by Tameko L. Barnette

I am enveloped in your hand
as you shake me for a moment.
Then you toss me onto the ground
and I feel drops of water on my head.

I try to stay above ground
but I feel myself sinking fast into the soil
Just when I thought my life was over
I begin to sprout and grow stronger
than I was before and I thank you.
