Ode to Loss of Nature’s Dreams

From seed to seedling to young plant, eager leaves facing sun,

Beginning roots transplanted into new soil to grow tall

And worthy to fulfill the promise of ripe, juicy tomatoes;

But it took one glaring half-moon’s frosty breath minus one degree

To turn its plant cells into ice crystals and disrupt life’s flow
