The Nursery

The old tree is long dead. Most of her once majestic form has returned to the soil to enrich future generations. Yet, she has one more function to perform before she is consumed by decay and rot. In spring, nestled among the shelf mushrooms and mosses growing along her hollow prostrate trunk, a seedling sprouts. It is the offspring of her offspring and will grow strong, closer to the nourishing sun than its grounded siblings. With time the seedling reaches tall and wraps its eager roots around the dead tree, feeding off her composting nutrients and reaching for the loamy earth below. Someday, she will be gone, a part of the rich forest humus, but even then her shape will remain, a vacancy sculpted by the roots of her progeny.
