growth of a year

From the seed came the tree
from the tree the leaf
around the leaf the flowers
within the flowers the seed
the seed turned into fruit
the fruit fell downwards
some; birds took skywards
depositing them inwards
and there they all took seed
and from there they grew
and thence into saplings
who grew into adolescence
like so many other brethren
and then they all grew
and then came the grove
and in the grove some bushes
and once again came the tree
this time; sturdier genes
the old insecurities all gone
out, out with the old fear
the old tree gathered rings
the young ran around in a ring
and brought in yet another year
