Mama, what happens to the seeds when they blow in the wind

Daughter, the seeds of our ancestors 

As they blow left and write

They spread 

They bring their knowledge of past gardens

They bring strength that they got from other flowers

They bring the feeling of being plucked from some harsh areas

They bring thoughts of words that tore them down in the past 

Words that get down to the root and can continue to wreak havoc on our community

When they reach the soil, new life can be started

Fresh smells that permeate each area of the garden

They bring resistance against the elements 

They bring resilience that they will grow 

Rising up, coming together to make a beautiful bouquet
