regeneration

a goat feeds on seeds
a living compost bin breathes
new growth underfoot

The cycle of nature - of death and rebirth - so easily explained.

That living compost bin plays an important role in the cycle of life--and makes us smile and wonder. A marvel of resilience.

Thanks all,
The inspiration actually came from a life lesson I read in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. All I did was reduced what she shared into this form.

I love the smell of goat's milk and goat's cheese. I just really like goats, they're funny. Three separate images, tied together with the concept of seeds. Nice, I can tell you njoyed writing it, the poem has an air of contentment about it.

This made me laugh out loud! What fun! It made me think of all the goose poo at the swamp, contributing in no small part to the lovely green grass! Love it!

Who would have thought of a goat as a compost bin-- how creative!
