This piece emphasizes a child's inherent respect for other living beings and reminds us that what we need to grow is love.
I’m a tree and this is how my story begins and ends. .
First, I started as a seed in a quiet tree farm.
I tried to grow up, but I could not.
I was different, but that was what I liked about me.
I stood still, but no one wanted me
until one day a girl finally picked me.
She planted me in the soil in her backyard,
and this is how my story began.
The bugs crawl up my branches,
the squirrels pass by,
as the years pass by, birds build nests in my branches.
I am loved.
Eventually I die,
and the girl is sad for me.
My last breath was peaceful.
The girl’s love for me was so big,
I came back to life.
The simplicity of the poems and the deep care and love for relationships
Delicate petals and soft flowers
Are cozy seats for bugs
Bees eat the delicious nectar
off the flowers.
Love these lines. These lines so aptly describes the nature during spring time❤️❤️
Takes the reader there to wonderful setting of a beautiful spring day with the shining sun, flowers, soft and delicate petals, the bees, the smell of spring!
Nora touched all my senses with the sun, the flowers with the delightful smells, the cozy soft petals, the thunder! Very well written and takes the reader to the beautiful setting created by the poem.
Wonders of Nature
I can imagine the scene with the animals playing by the creek.
Amazing how she talks about saying goodbye to childhood being a child herself! Time does go by fast.
It is so true and from the heart. Friendship is like a seed!
I love this poem because by the end, I realize that she’s making a subtle but powerful connection between the animals she writes about and childhood. I first visualize animals playing but by the end I visualize children instead. It brings nostalgia to the reader and is very powerful!
What a powerful and perfect simile to compare friendship to a seed! Both are powerful and life affirming, and I love how the author uses the word “deep” both literally for a seed, and metaphorically for friendship. Very honest and powerful!
A beautiful poem, because it transports the reader to that essence of spring, that we all know and love. I can see and smell all the sites. My favorite part is how she compares the petals of flowers to being cozy seats for bugs. Wonderful imagery and use of metaphors.
Beautiful imagery! A great poem because it transports the reader to that special essence of spring which everyone loves!
Beautiful imagery! I can see the sun and bees, and smell the flowers and spring smell. The best poem because it transports you emotionally. Wonderful!
