Vegetation and soils are a good starting point for the carbon cycle. In this case, the carbon will be mixed into the earth (soil), and moved to the crust.
When the carbon is in the crust, it usually moved into a different stage over a long period of time. This carbon atom will now be flown downstream from a river and into the ocean.
Once in the ocean, the carbon atom has many other ways to go from one carbon source pool to another. This carbon atom will be eaten by a small fish, then a bigger fish.
When the fish dies, it will become a fossil, and turn into a fossil fuel for the carbon atom. It will them be extracted by humans for Kerogen and burnt into the Atmosphere.
Once in the Atmosphere, it will either become a heavy carbon atom, will be cycle through Photosynthesis, etc. In this case, the carbon atom will be dragged into photosynthesis.
When the atom is back into the vegetation, the cycle will repeat, but there are many ways it shall begin/end. The Carbon Cycle can start at any stage, go through any stage, and end at any stage.
