“LIFE & LEAVE”

The powerful soil,

that feeds the roots, of life.


The tree’s in the spring,

budding spring leaves,

developing to carry strength for,

it’s growing,

fruits of labour.


The shades it’s giving,

to protect,

from midsummer shine.

Reaching for the destiny,

of its fruit.


Fall leaves,

their powerful colours,

Red, Brown and Autumn Gold,

doing their powerful dance.

Towards mother earth,

their final resting place.


The powerful power,

they are having,

to leave to mother-earth,

Returning to their roots,

of their birth.


To the soil,

that feeds our soul.


Ray & Vel Drooger.
