napowrimo day 5: the natural world

This grass knows it must change
From brown to white to green
These trees know how to prosper
With or without leaves 

Sometimes there are flowers
Short and bright and sweet
Though they know that their purpose
Is mostly for the bees

The ants know that together
There’s more they can complete
This river runs regardless
Of how deep the ice may freeze

This valley knows what matters
These things we can’t control
Don’t look to life for answers
But watch it as it flows
