Preservation of the Land

rocky springs tree april 28

Beautiful tree in the soil

surrounded by erosion

poor land management

led to its corrosion


Life has seen much history

so much time has passed

hanging on to survive

each day may be its last


A new generation has come

it cares about the land

the tree has hope again

more soil and not as much sand


Hope is high

plan for preservation

what was lost

replaced without hesitation


Preservation has begun

across this great land

restoring before being lost

is the plan


Thankful to God

for this beautiful tree

the land has hope

in what it can see

  2. Is it a forest park? Hmm.. So many are seriously writing about soil erosion all around the world? Sadly the soil takes even longer time to restore it’s fertility in comparison to it’s formation.. But at least as you said, A new generation has come… We can hope can’t we..

    • The tree is in Rocky Springs, Mississippi on the Natchez Trace. It is on a historic trail that is marked with the town’s history. Poor land management is part of the demise of the ghost town. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for reading.

    • Hi. Thank you for thinking of me. I am fine. My husband and I are in the process of transitioning an elderly parent that has sold their home. This is a difficult and long process since we are cleaning out the house. My posts will be sporatic for awhile. I have been able to read some posts on my phone but finding time to write is difficult at the moment. Thanks for checking on me. Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful day!
