Oaks a Mighty Tree

Nature plays a role,
role in her capacity,
capacity always with much love
love flowing over, causing so much flooding.
Flooding is a disaster so many times for some,
some tiny acorn seed washed downstream floats onto fertile soil.
Soil spouts out new life, a mighty oak tree is formed, important regrowth.

Regrowth playing a vital role in forest ecology with oaks,
oaks having tough leathery shells survived many mighty knocks,
knocks helping to crack the shell, too heavy for the wind.
Wind does not help oak trees with germination.
Germination maybe with squirrels,
squirrels planting nuts serve oaks.
Oaks a mighty tree.
