new life


leaves unfurling
in new life
born upon generations
fed by roots which
in great wisdom
have seen many
come and go
but it all hardly matters
as it is forward for a
soft leaf in a new time
ingrained with promise
steeped in legacy
all with new purpose
for a season
that springs upon
the grays with hues
of pastel and the
green of unfurling
new life.

Sean Seal
“Michigan Supermoon”

The harvest moon
i spied tonight
with his light casting
over things passing
much too quickly.
and I longed for morning
but Instead I asked him
to remember
when he was younger
so we could talk
about blessed moments
gone by.
