Transcreating Christ: The Parable of the Sower

In life the sower is always sowing
seeds of wisdom as natural as can be.
First seeds fall upon the highway of your world
and little birds of large appetite rumor it away.
Next seeds fall upon hard ground of human knowledge
where the soil is superficial but the grain appears to grow without delay,
yet since this earth has little depth of true intelligence,
the first clear dazzling light of day overwhelms the early growth,
and as these seedlings have no true roots, they wither.
Subsequently seeds descend among the weeds
where no compassion tends the soil
and thorns of great hostility chokes them all away.
Yet there comes a time seeds land among responsive ground
and bears its fruit to thirty times, one-hundred times,
ten-thousand times, this great awakening—
whoever has ears to hear, listen.
