A poem to share

- by Stephen Harrod Buhner, from “The Secret Teachings of Plants”

Semen is Latin

for a dormant, fertilized,

plant ovum –

a seed.

Men’s ejaculate

is chemically more akin

to plant pollen.


it is really

more accurate

to call it

mammal pollen.

To call it


is to thrust

an insanity

deep inside our culture:

than men plow women

and plant their seed

when, in fact,

what they are doing

is pollinating



Doesn’t that change everything between us?
