A Tiny Seed Planted in the Earth

By PoeticMeditations

A tiny seed planted in the earth
May sprout, take root, began to grow
And from such lowly, humble birth,
Seeks the sun’s life-giving glow.

Through no toil or needless pain
Becomes a sapling in the breeze;
Its thirst quenched by heaven’s rain
With branches sprouting verdant leaves.

Day by day, the roots sink down,
Seeking nourishment from the soil.
The top becomes a skyward crown,
Standing proud, majestic and royal.

Each year, one ring added to its girth.
Branches laden with fruit bow low
Whose tiny seeds will fall to earth,
May sprout, take root, begin to grow.
