Sower, Seed and Soil

Sower of the seed
Generous You spread
Wisdom to Your children
To soul be gift embed

Often ears are closed
Too busy for that now
Eyes that do not seek
Tend to disavow

A pious heart receives
Says yes, it is the way
But does not soak it in
It’s for another day

A word is understood
Perhaps it dwells within
Surrendered to You not
Lacks the discipline

Let seed take root in me
Cherish gift divine
Nurture Word of God
May roots grow deep I find

Soil rich me bless
With eyes focused on You
Purpose seeking Word
To grow in soul anew
