From The Shoots To The Roots

The sky cried, tears falling
and tapping on the pane,
I am warm and comfortable inside
Nurtured and protected
from the summer rain.
A flurry of wind, and
here it all comes again!

Flowers opened rejoicing,
giving succour to their blooms,
down through the stems and shoots
flowing deeper into their roots.

Plants in perfect balance
reaching into mother earth,
Discovering something of worth
to cling on
Absorbing energy, steady and strong.
