Baking A Forest

Published: June 2016

Sprinkle a few seeds on the cupcake,
add a few bushes, pines, and red woods for health's sake.
Let the twigs fall, don't clean up the leaves,
for if we do nature would not be pleased.

Spray a little water, it should not be too dry.
Add a little sunlight, but not enough to fry.
Add a few animals, birds would be great,
and leave it alone, until you accept your fate.

A single gift given for what you took,
One trillionth of payment for returning what you forsook.
A ray of light still shines on the caused sin,
A last chance to help nature, the planet and kin.

Look upon it with a smile.

Sister Gloria was my first grade teacher, I was given both a hearing aid and magnified reading glasses, with one on one guidance and my willingness to learn. Sister was my guiding light. My education was the best thing I could have ever hoped for.
