Tree

DSC057411

See the tree near you; he is old, touch the creases on His bark.

He has watched men of power come and go

Patiently,

he has seen women of beauty leave and transform into stars.

Walk over and ask His permission

Embrace His trunk and seek shelter

Let his shade and wisdom grow to be your sanctuary.

 

Some day He will watch you leave

They might even bury you under his roots

So that you can repay Him

So that his shade and wisdom

can some day

befriend your children and grandchildren.

Blessings
