  Love as the earth
Surrounding the seed
Expecting nothing in return.

Hope as the tree
Standing in the forest
For a Heaven it will never reach.

Trust as the leaf
Releasing from its home
but feeling no fear of the landing.

Lovely. I liked your personification of nature: the earth, the tree, the leaf and how you related these to love, hope and trust. Well-written.

I enjoyed this; you packed a lot into the spare poetry.

Thanks I appreciate the comments. All of these are relatively old that I wrote for no one but me. It's little scary, not because of the fear of failure, but because I am showing my soul so to speak.
