The seed





    THE SEED

   Once upon a time, a seed fell between some rocks and couldn’t go out.

    She was very sad and said:

    – I never become a plant, without earth, water or sun.

    A bird listened to the seed and went to tell it to Mother Earth.

    – The seed was trapped between the rocks and can’t go out.

    Then, Mother Earth called the Sun and the Rain. Together, they went to where the seed was trapped and said:

    Open your leafs

    To the Wind and the Sun.

    A stem will born

    a beautiful flower.

    The rain started to fall. The seed sunked in the fertile ground. It became stronger by the Rain and the Sun and started to germinate.

     Their leafs were like two little green eyes, wondered by the world. The stem grew and grew... Suddenly, a bud was born, and soon a flower: a circle with freckles, surrounded by yellow petals.

    That beautiful flower was a sunflower!

    (Isabel Freire de Matos)
