This work has reached the exceptional level
Growing a tree isn't easy


by B.B. Rose

Pleiades Poetry Contest Winner 
Trees haven't the option to go
Traipsing about, searching a place to root
Their tiny seeds that face, at best,
Terrible odds of finding a spot that's not
Too wet, too dry, too cold, too hot, for
Taking the only chance they've got
To grow where they have landed.
