“Life Cycle”

Yesterday
I drew a flower
from life
Today
a bee drew life
from its bloom
Tomorrow
the flower returns
life to the soil
So I can draw
anew

  5. I like the word play on the word draw. I think the poem works.
    It reveals with its use how nature words and we become a part of the cycle.
