Seeds of Thought

Black loam is the best soil
Seeds need a dark, rich place
To germinate in quiet isolation
Protected from even the most well-intentioned interference

Ideas are the same
We speak of bringing them to light
But from where
The dark recesses of our minds
The rich blackness of subconscious
Inklings, thoughts before thoughts

The biggest eurekas, the brightest epiphanies
Need that silent darkness for understanding to dawn
