A tree….

 

A

tree

Speaks on

this snowy night.

Look more.

Do you see us captive in this

light?  Our branches must Bend,

going under this new weight, come Again,

with the light of new day, we

will soon melt into

softer

snow.

Down.


A

tree

Hears on

this snowy night.

Listen for

the groaning of weight

to repair what moves in frozen limbs.

Changing to be the focus of now,

the new season of time, care and love.

reforming with stillness,

softer

snow.

Down.

A

tree to

bring us thoughts

of meaning and perceptiveness

Grown in another home, transplanted

Here, to bring

memories and smiles and a view from that past

with many promises of the future, growing in all

directions, from above, to the sides unseen, to the back

unseen in Plain Sight,

softer

Now,

Down.
