Unseen

Below the fingers reaching, growing
Into darkness, stretching..holding

Feeding above tiny buds of green
Working day and night, beauty unseen

Preparing a mighty fortress strong and bold
To withstand battles, ancients foretold

Above saplings bend supple in summer breeze
Not realizing, soon comes winter's freeze

Life's cycles pass from season to season
Saplings now majestic, offering no reason

Below the mysterious changes take place
Green turns to rainbows, across horizons face

Encased in ice, and snow of white
They sleep, feeding both day and night

Awaiting first tiny buds of green
Below the magic remains unseen

    A true gardener with a green thumb. I enjoyed the cycle of plant life conveyed so well in your poem. I love to garden, but unfortunately I had to give it up. Bad back and neck makes it impossible to keep my gardens groomed. Warm Smiles, Connie

    My husband too loves gardening. very few have the magic. They just have to dig a hole to plant. But for some, even with all the care the can't get what those magic fingers get. You must be a garden lover. Nicely penned your feelings. Love this poem Hugs for your magic fingers
