Mother Nature



By: Kiley Price


The sun shone through the trees.

There were no leaves

Only a slight breeze.

I sat under the tree with glee

As happy as a bee in a field of flowers.

I looked at the tree

It was distinctly rough.

I imagined what it would be like if we were as tall as that tree

It would be an interesting sight to see.

I wandered around the tree to find a patch of mold

This tree must be quite old.

I move my hand across the bark

It was all very dry and dark.

I look up as the sun is shining through the branches

It was perfect for insects and birds

It was like a mansion.
