The Falling Seed

Did you ever hear about the apple that fell off the tree branch?
over time it became part of the earth.
will the seed plant itself?
pull water from the ground ?
funny how it knows what it needs
clouds clear the sky giving off heat
and light
the seed will grow and mature
and break through earth's surface
it will learn to breathe oxygen
over time it will grow into something
who would have ever thought something so small
could be so important in the earth's life?
