Crimson’s Creative Challenge #232 #Bare bones with a story

Take a look and what do you see

probably just an old dead tree

but long ago when I was young

I gave relief from the scorching sun

each Spring covered in fresh green leaf

for living things to hide beneath

some would nibble on my soft shoots

others snuffle between my roots

now my energy is depleted

I rest, my work on Earth completed

but no you say, your work’s not done

for in your bones you store my carbon.
