Nature Joins the War – Missing the light
Imagine the matter and energy required,
In changing a seed into a tree.
Think of all the things involved.
Before that thing can be.
A tiny seed lands on the earth.
It hardly made a sound.
It sits and waits and barely shifts,
As it sinks into the ground.
It breached the earth that tiny seed,
With help from all around.
It lies in wait, missing the light.
It starts to gain the need to breach,
The earth that’s round about,
The tinier things within the seed.
Start their journey out.
