Sower

To Dr. Edith Tiempo -- "Mom" -- on the occasion of her 66th wedding anniversary:


How seeds will grow the sower does not know
Cast in air, act of faith in every throw
A season's turn. Fruits of fidelity:
Green fields for harvest, new sowers to sow

From the least expressive, possibly the least talented, but not, he hopes, the least caring of her "children."
