Seedy Life

spring showers
lengthening days soil warming

roots descend searching
cotyledon arising

stem elongates
fractal branches stretching skyward

bark covered boughs
cloaked in emerald petioles

florid dew drenched petals exude
enchanting fragrances

buzzing hovering humming creatures
accumulate sweet nectar disseminate pollen

gravid globular pome ripens
changing hue

drupe exudes alluring ambrosia
beckoning ethereal forest sprites

ravenous beasts trigger
Gaia’s bacchanalia

binging gorging devouring
until consummated

overripe fruit plunges
to earth rotting

spent leaves fade wither
fall decay

lonely seed nestles in winter bed
dreaming of spring
