via Daily Prompt: Elastic


This remnant of fallen bough lying in a paddock for maybe thirty years, termites, borers, slaters, ants, wind, frost, rain, and sun, all taking their toll on this piece of wood. Once alive and elastic, now reduced to a core, the juice of life gone. Earth to earth …. elastic no more, yet in its own way, giving back, enabling elasticity in the soil through nutrients and fiber. Not bouncing back but giving life.
