Spring becomes summer
and a myriad seeds are released.
Seeds so packed with life.
One may become a great tree - another -
become food for other life - each - vital to
the endless procession of the universe.
From the time life - so carefully packed within
the little seed - begins - it must grow
its leaves must seek the light - its roots
reach out for food - together they achieve a
deklicate balance of restoration and adjustment
-as long as the plant shall live
it must grow.
- for what is life
With a simple lichen on a rock
or the most complex organism that lives
to stay growth
is to kill life.
From the beginning of life on earth
growth and the quest for perfection
has been the one consistency. ~ Gwen Frostic
