Another from The Poet of Utah Park:


How Seeds Learned to Fly


They were taught by their mothers
but first they had to get there
all that way
up on high

The climb from primordial oceans
was not an easy feat
billions of years of trial and error
victory and defeat

all to give a final push
of seedling breaking free
floating downward like snowflakes
from the mighty cottonwood trees

I stop for a moment in wonder
astonished by nature’s game
imagine myself in a snow globe
as beauty dances ‘round me
