Tree of life

We are leaves
on the tree of life,
we bud, grow, mature
then fade, dry
fall and perish,
nourishing and
making way for
our successors,
as the tree
continues to grow
towards its destiny.

  1. It’s a lovely poem and a lovely sentiment. But I fear that the nourishing of the ground for our successors has gone awry. Sorry to be cynical. It’s still a beautiful poem. Just a spoil sport reader.
