This One Is About 14' Deep Now, Nearly Dry This Morning.  Tens Of Thousands Of Gallons Enjoying Its Stay On Our Property For As Long As Possible.

Ideas Rain upon us, may we soak them up and grow.

In a matter of an hour 
we made up for months of none.
The Rain came down upon us 
and made life for plants more fun.
Frogs will frolic, turtles swim,
trees will suck it to their limbs.

Life throughout the universe,
lives on water for its thirst.
Thus as we build our tiny shelters,
it will feed what we plant first.

From the seeds will grow a movement,
with strong roots that reach so far,
that the sprouts will pop up over
all the world that cares enough.

So help to move the people forward,
to the time when we respect,
Not just Earth but those before us
who have sacrificed for thus.

Preserve and save our treasures as we
pass the world to younger hands.
Leave them with the right solutions
they will need to take a stand.

We must begin
the fight for Earth now.
Join together all as one.
Save the planet that we live on.
Save the water and the ground.

Free the people to be healthy,
let them grow the food they need.
Stop the greedy corporations,
that want to mix our food like feed.

We are not cattle to be fattened,
yet our species seems to grow
fat and stupid when they eat crap
TV teaches them with shows.

So see the water fresh and fallen
from the clouds above us now.
God’s sweet gift that gives us new life
likewise floods and kills you know.

Thus understand what we are given,
and must be so thankful for,
lest we should face the drought and flooding,
and much worse that is in store.

Permaculture not destruction,
Social structures built to work
if the masses downsize promptly,
We may save the planet Earth.

Just as water brings new life out,
Ideas do the same for minds.
Like seeds and water in the soil,
my images are what you’ll find.

I plant them softly and with loving,
tenderness to sow them well.
So like water they will free up,
grey cells to grow up and swell.

Into dreams they will grow swiftly,
then to plans you’ll make for homes.
Finally they will break out into
homes created out of poems.

Then if successful, jungles follow,
full of food, of Hope, of fun.
Ways to build a future that will
breed a future joined as One.

My seeds don't look like other seeds, but surely they will sow.
