A very true last line.

Terrific, as usual! Your New Year writing is off to a fine start...
..the typhoon goes on and on.... yes, it does doesn't it...
"She plants Love"...that is the proper way to start a New Year. I wish you much happiness for 2011.
Bravo!So lovely and so many layers to this one. And I see many different ways this poem can be interpreted. For me, I am struck by the thought that we are made stronger when, in those moments of being in the deep, dark shadows that are a part of every life, we allow ourselves to be embraced by God. For those embraces are indeed nurturing and give rise to the fortitude necessary to continue planting those seeds of love! Keep on sowing those seeds my dear!
This is such a wonderful poem. Must agree that there are several layers here. I love them all.
That was just lovely Gautami. Most of us are like this...Happy New Year!
