A seed lands, crack expands
Roots making life from hard rock
Water feeds new plant needs
In the shade of a great hemlock
Boulder becomes mineral crumbs
Roots, rock, rain in wedlock
Through sun and storms new soil forms
The tale of a forest epoch.
A Naturette Poem. A poetry form I invented to write about a tiny detail of nature.
The 8-line poem has the following rhyme scheme and syllable count:
Snow boots near spiky fruits
Seeds far from the capsules by now
Dropped in turds spread by birds
Away from the blades of a plow
Just the shell where it fell
After tumbling from a bough
debris under a tree
But still helping with life somehow
Invented poetic form
8 lines with the following rhyme scheme and (syllable count) about small finds in nature.
