Rising Up


Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Photo Challenge.

The trees started off small

Tiny compared to their parents

The saplings sleeping in their bed of soil

The animals that lived there

Shared the spoils, feeding the tree

while eating the fruit

And slowly the trees

headed for the sky

and from the tops little birds fly

While down below

where the roots they grow

the animals are protected from wind, rain and snow
