The view of one simple thin stem,
with a solid base rooted deep-down in the soil,
is of one strong and up-right foundation
suitable for more growth.
It will branch out and reach with slender arms,
to offer young, tender sprouts to the sky.
These also will develop to become stronger and
then transform into shelters and homes
to many of the small creatures of our world.
