Taking Shape

     This visual poem is to be read from the bottom up!
                                            That holds the mighty tree
                              reveal the seed                         like the acorn
                         his strength               to quicken          bare his heart
                     all the light               that carries him     keep waiting for
         who gave him life     See through the soul          and not the eyes
               upon the soul            to bear him down             but rest in He 
            To humbly grow         and not allow tempest            and battering storm
          Until the grave            is given life                          free to choose
       And such is man             in form of babe             from the womb
          Of reaching high           and                           stretching deep
           They are not strong     to stand                  the process      
                beast                     or rain                 and wind
                 And some         are trampled       by man or                  

                    as tender                          shoots
                         Begin to                     appear
                                          And saplings

                                          Or left to die
                                          Are eaten up
                                          And others
                                          Take root
                                          And some
                                Its seeds on the ground
                                 But now it drops
                                One once was       
                         It needs not even be planted     
                              It starts with an acorn
