In Return (Daily Post Response)

This post is a response to: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/06/04/daily-prompt-pills/ , which said to show nourishment. I strayed a little from the theme. Hope you like it!

 

The earth cradled me in her hands

Allowed me to drink from her rivers

To eat from her brood

Though I gave nothing in return

She brought winds to cool me

A sun to warm me

Stars to shelter me

Though I gave nothing in return

She grew flowers to please me

Vibrant colors and sweet fragrances

And allowed me to take them from her

Though I gave nothing in return

She nourished me and loved me

Until she had no more to give

But with one seed

Wrapped tenderly in a apology

And buried deep in thanks

I offered something in return
