A Nature Partnership

big tree reservoir overlook natchez trace

The young sapling

is planted in the ground

partnering with the land

fruitful to be abound


Taking from the soil

the nutrients that it needs

growing strong and tall

edging out the weeds


It is mature now

giving fruit in the spring

food falling down

spread like a ring


The leaves begin to fall

returning nutrients to the land

partnering with the soil

replenishment is the plan


The cycle continues

the process of give and take

trees and soil

each season they make


God has blessed them

a wonderful partnership

living in harmony

on this planet’s spaceship
