A sapling growing towards the sun

Every branch connected to roots

The branches become weary

The roots weaken


A new seed yearns in the soil

Seeks its place in it

Struggles and settles

Living harmoniously with it


Like water

Into air

All with earth 

All with sun

Beginning to end

Never truly ending


River and earth

Sun and moon

Revolving together 

Constant and pure

Rising and fading


Seed planted 

Seed grown

Connected to the past 

Reaching into the future 


Simple as a seed

In Mother Earth

On the flow of time

    Super write, the stanza
    "Seed planted
    Seed grown
    Connected to the past
    Reaching into the future"

    Is so very true.

    A fine write Lawless.
    Bit like me singing - once planted, the seed grows to an enormous plant. Always there, never dies off, etc - like it or not..... me singing, that is! lol.
