September seeds

September seeds

September seeds
          borne on wings
dispersed far and wide
          on the wind
or in the gut of birds
          life encapsulated
waiting to germinate
          to spring forth
into new shade
          and fresh fruit

out from the soil
          driven by the sun
to spread its light
          to carry its standard
to the far corners
          of the mineral earth
