There Was A Tree That Grew From A Seed
written by: C.R. Daugherty
There was a tree that grew from a seed.
It grew gnarled and pollinated itself.
Over time, the tree dropped seed
That would not take.
The tree grew flowers of wisdom
Who fell slowly into void.
A leaf of money fell from the tree one day
To germinate a vine.
Now, the vine chokes the tree,
Threatening all its life.
The tree does not know
If there are other trees,
Some of her branches dying,
Some of her leaves not minding.
Does the tree want to live
The orchids of the vine
Are infecting our only tree
