The Apple falls under the apple tree..gets eaten by a bird..and the seed rolls onto the pavement!

What happens… When a seed hits the pavement And rolls in a crack.. Can’t be seen! It is then watered.. Some how..for a seed Will never say It was water by a can.. Or by nature..some how in every way!

Crunch time is the situation here… Surviving the Tidal Wave..will be the challenge my dear!

They focused on the pictures and images, caught  ...
