A reflection on the Sower Parable in Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

“Words are trucks full of meaning,” he said.
Sent out from the source of our head.
The import bestowed on those so endowed
With hearing determines their spread.

A reach to the heart is what’s needed
And life throws out much to impede it.
Words and deeds go to waste, even done without haste
Although some dig deep and are seeded.

So fling good words around and let them abound
The bin is full and replete with much grace
Let them land where they will; some will multiply still
And fill lives where there was once empty space.
