Alfalfa Sprout

Many of my students know that I love the poetry of Danna Faulds. She is a reflective writer who shares her loving perspective of yoga and nature in her works.

Lately, I am reading some poems from her book, One Soul, in our classes.  Here is a perfectly appropriate piece for spring and our March theme of strength and energy.

Alfalfa Sprout

I am so ready. Squeezed inside this tiny seed, I am coiled energy, waiting for water and light, waiting to breathe, waiting for the green of me to come forth. Compact potential, waiting to unwind, waiting to find my way out, waiting for a rebirth into something far different than I’ve It’s time. I know it’s time. Oh, have you ever seen anything as lovely as this shoot, this root reaching out and down, drinking life in? To create a leaf worthy of being eaten is a full-blown miracle to me.
