Among us, showing dimly here and there, are the best cherry blossoms of the morning glory ... Though shallow to the eye this may seem - the river that divides these lands - yet far down beneath the troubled waves runs a seminal current that will never cease.

Call something seminal when it's so original, so groundbreaking and awesome that it will influence everything that comes after it. Picasso probably produced more than a few seminal works of art, for example.

Technically, seminal means something related to semen or seeds. But these days people more often use the word to describe something that plants the seed for creative growth. An innovative piece of music or literature, a fresh new idea, or an invention that changes everything could each be called seminal. Synonyms include critical, fundamental, original, and primary.

seminal


The artist himself was at that time busy upon two great designs; the first, to sow land with chaff, wherein he affirmed the true seminal virtue to be contained, as he demonstrated by several experiments, which I was not skilful enough to comprehend.

There was an early art piece that I was developing for silkscreens prints when one evening, the center cloud formation became my seminal moment, changing my entire direction as an artist.
