NPM 2021 - Found Poem 24

Today's found poem comes from the New York Times article One of the World’s Oldest Science Experiments Comes Up From the Dirt, written by Cara Giaimo.

Up From the Dirt

under cover of darkness, waiting
a botanist’s version of buried treasure
constellation of sleeping seeds
biding their time
hiding out in the soil

seed and soil
sown and watered
expect tender green shoots

  1. My goodness I LOVE this. Of course the seeds are still viable - one indeed must EXPECT tender green shoots if one will sow and water!
