The Seed

The dusty field lay in a dormant death
Hushed by years of abusing carelessness
Man and woman stand silent and strong
They search the horizon

The plain is before them devoid of life
A solitary soaring bird passes over
Clasping hands, soiled already from toil
They seek some answers

He grasps the shovel and raises it high
A thrust of his might bores into the dirt
A sigh is heard within the earth
It is now time to begin

She reaches into the satchel she carries
Grasping a single seed in her hand
The bird cries above as it circles them
The seed is now sown.
