After watering, it grew.
Everyday, I watched it grow,
Till it became a tree
Strongly rooted in the ground.

It was a beautiful tree
With fresh and green leaves
Its trunk bearing branches,
Its branches bearing good fruit.

It was greatly admired by many
As they passed by and saw it.
I was proud it was my tree when
I thought of how I grew it.

The hungry couldn’t resist it
As they plucked its fruits to eat.
Succulent and delicious they were,
Nourishing their bodies quite well.

But as I looked at it one morning
I thought and said to myself
“More of this tree can be birthed
If I take the time to plant the seeds”.

I began to plant the seeds,
And watered like I did at first.
Before long, they grew and sprung up
Filling the whole land with trees.

The joy of planting
Stood before me so beautiful!
How would I have had a forest
If I didn’t take the time to plant?

Once, I was like the fruitful tree
Satisfied with just being me,
Till I found out that the fruits and
Seeds in me, could give birth to others.

Today I am like you,
Planting good seeds in
Every space and place,
Causing a great harvest.

I am the joy of planting
Standing right before you
How would I have been a forest
Had you not planted?

"I am the joy of planting
Standing right before you
How would I have been a forest
Had you not planted?"
Creative and brilliant, really love the message of abundance woven throughout.

Mavelous. A free verse poem that flows well, and gives a good message. Good job!

Great message here. For me, it would work better as a prose piece. I loved the last stanza, though.
