Close up shot of a nut

Tufty has broke her wing, she cannot fly for 2 months.
A feather falls off in the soil. She waters the ground with her tears.
2 months later, when she can fly again, her sprout has grown into an acorn tree
1 year later, when she is happy, her tree is happy just as much.
1 week later, when she’s sad, her tree is sad just as much!
Tufty is so small yet her tree is so big,
her soul and heart are as big as her tree.
