Cracking The Shell

Big things in small packages
The mantra of the nut
The future tree

Big leafy bouroughs
Atop a big trunk that skyward shoots
With wide deep roots

But stuck in that nut
All these dreams
Became corrupt

Just a crack in the shell
Is all the nut needs
To break this trapping spell

A chance to see the light
And burst forth
In delight

But that shell is tough
A big intention is needed
For this future to soe

The nut keeps pounding
Til it sees that glow
Tastes the air and its go go go!
