Seasons, Cycles and Furniture

An acorn has no choice but to be an oak tree. It cannot change the shape of it’s leaves, nor does it choose where it grows. It shades summer, colors autumn, bares itself steadfast and strong in winter, and sighs out a refreshing welcome to Spring. It continues every season. And if its purpose is the chair I sit upon, it holds me. Death does not stop it’s life.

Weep not for your cause
Opportune moments will die
Trees listen in wind

Open link night at dVerse. Well, this is morning. Enjoy!

    Truth. In the lives of trees… in the lives of humans.


  4. It starts with an acorn… how true… amazing how much that can come from something so small it can hide in the fist of a toddler.

    Nice sentence: “And if its purpose is the chair I sit upon, it holds me. “
