Re-generations

once we were
a seedling
nurtured into life
beneath the canopy
of ancestral branches
the lives long-lived
became the greenhouse
for our budding
yet-formed leaves
through the years
the landscape changes
old growth becomes
rich soil
and we become 
the canopy
called to nurture
the seedlings
at our feet
