Circle of Life

Released from the flowering bud
And carried by the wind
It now awaits the warmth of spring
To gain a foothold once again
Underneath the velvet white
Lying dormant in the cold
A little seed hides and waits
For the right time to unfold
Collecting moisture and expanding roots
Gaining momentum everyday
With energy taken from the sun
The circle of life will be portrayed
A sprout becomes a mighty stalk
A flower begins to bloom
Seeds are formed inside their shell
Surrounded by sweet perfume
The seeds mature and leave the nest
Falling gently into peat
Covered by the winters white
Its life has become complete

This poem transported my mind and triggered my imagination. It is very well written using all the 5 senses. You should be a proud man.

Seldom de we find a poet that can make us feel the power of Life. The way it starts and blooms and begets seeds so that its life can be replicated and the circle made complete! We can appreciate through James Hunter's "Circle of Life" that life is indeed beautiful!
