WHAT IS A SEED ? Rogation Sunday 2016


W hat's is a seed - what's in a seed ?

H ow does such a small and shrivelled thing

A lways result in a flower a vegetable

T hat looks (and tastes) just like it says on the packet ?


I plant lots of seeds on my allotment

S owing them in good soil and watering


A seed is full of great expectations !


S ow them in hope - harvest them with joy

E very seed contains DNA derived from its "parent"

E ach seed has DNA for its species - veggie or flower

D ont ever take seeds for granted - each one is JEWEL !


Have you planted any seeds this year ?  Please comment - BRIAN

  • Comment from author about the poem: I'm a BIOCHEMIST and for me each seed I plant is an experiement in science and faith. I know my carrot seeds contain carrot DNA and I have faith that they will germinate and produce carrot plants the root of which will be good to eat - carrots are yummy ! My part is in preparing the soil (not too much clay for carrots) watering and protecting my growing plants fom weeds (competition) and insects who will eat them. I find growing things very cathartic - flowers for beauty and veggies and fruit for body ! Thanks for reading - please comment - BRIAN

        This is such a brilliant poem. For me, each seed is like hope and every time one is planted it gives more hope for new life to spring.
