Natural Processes

Erosion begins to wear rock away

Slowly eating day after day

The earth swallows the ocean whole

Spat back out to represent soul.

 

Reeds and rushes grow from clay

As weeds look eager at skies grey

How mud so thick can catch so much

Encased so deep and wet to touch.

 

Flowers open to the growing wood

Trees lay down as they know they should

As the storm rages above to rain below

Encouraging new life to begin to grow.

 

All seasons all life reliant thus

Day after day so little fuss

As awe inspiring as a fleeting look

Is nothing compared to the time it took.
