Natural Stump

Lifted from the soft ground is an old stump And moss covers the surface It holds great aroma Flowers enhance view They bring a wonderful smell A grandiose sound Exists near the stream nearby Stump transfixes all humans Dirt was flown about After tree fell years ago Nature took over

    An old stump can be beautiful and is not always lifeless. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce

    Love this!! You know me and nature. This is so gorgeous and so true. Nature has its magical way of repairing everything all over again and keeping everything beautiful. Best wishes in Constance's contest. Hugs and love, Gail

    Yes, it is so interesting how nature takes over and makes something beautiful out of something like a stump. good observation, Russell.

    gee, a wonderful mix of how mother earth lords it over at her command.. the ebb and flow of your lines give this work a distinct tone... superbly scribed, my friend...off to constance with laurels..:) huggs

    WOW... trees and their dominance in nature-- often reduced BY nature to a stump. Clever and great description-- could smell the moss.
