Plants Break Concrete

Note: Thought of it while listening to a sermon on ‘I am the true vine.’ Nature’s strength is subtle, but intimidating. The same with Christ’s. Like and comment below!

Plants break concrete.

By my house, workers

Built a path around

A maple tree.


Two hundred pound slabs

Like a weight dropped

On a lifter’s neck to stop

and choke off its roots.


Now thirty degrees

and a peace-sign-split

later, the shallow roots

Broke through concrete.
