This is an interesting picture and is a perfect match for your poem. It looks like it's struggling but making a valiant effort to survive. Which came first, the picture or the poem? Good luck in the contest.

Thanks, Mary. My answer is - a little of both. I began with one idea and a poem, saw this picture and revised it all together.
This is a very good entry for the contest. It's hard to create something worthwhile with a 1-6-1 poem when three of the words must rhyme. Your photo and last line really work for you. They help develop your theme that we need to be looking at what we are doing to nature.
