Fallow Field



~~~

Our minds are like the fallow field

Overgrown when left on their own

The truth of ourselves unrevealed

In all the brambles time has grown

~~~

The lesser die, the greater thrive

In the potpourri of our minds

Weeds and flowers are both alive

One is just much easier to find

~~~

Farmers with plows each season

Turn under the rooted earth

New, rich soil is the very reason

The field has inherent worth

~~~

Change is how we find the good

With the coming of each new spring

If we plant the seeds we should

The yield can be inspiring

~~~

So, tend your field, steward well

Nothing grows when left untilled

Change is where new thoughts dwell

And fallow dreams left unfulfilled

~~~

    I had to look up what fallow meant, and it seems like it is often a good idea to let fields lay fallow. That may suggest that it may be good to sometimes sit with our thoughts and not do anything for a bit…
