    Nice! It’s great when those magnetic words find a way to paint a vivid picture and message. You did it well. Trees are so precious, even in their afterlife!

    Using the magnets almost makes the poem look like an old tree!

    Often new life sprouts from the rot and ash of a stump or dying tree; likfe prevails

    I can see that old tree… and I have often noted how long it takes before all life is gone from the trunk of those old trees.
