Reaching for the light – a poem that gives hope

Reaching for the light is important as this poem shows.


I planted some seeds

I did not have high hopes

But I planted them all the same

I went away

Green shoots on my return

They outgrew their small pots

I gave them water and put them by the window

They love the light.

They reach out for it.

They know it is good for them.

And so they grow.

Soon they will flower

I can see their power.

And I will learn from them

Because I need to

I have suddenly realised I wrote this immediately after hearing of the death of Robin Williams which seems strangely apt as my favourite film is the Dead Poet’s Society.

Rest peacefully.
