The giving of life

Is there an afterlife ?

When the blooms fall

Will that be all ?

See how the seeds ripen

There will be a new eden

The seeds fall to earth

They create the rebirth

Dormant waiting for the season

They may be eaten

Eaten by an avian

Or into the soil sinking

Surviving the winter’s cold

In spring sprouting fourfold

We see a miracle occurring

Rainwater causes a stirring

The fresh water soaks the soil

The sprouts uncoil

Water gives life

To flora fauna to you, I, my wife

So think before you shower

For you have the power

Help prevent a barren land

Please don’t misunderstand

Our bodies are mostly water

Just make that shower shorter
