Tree of Life

flight landscape nature sky

The Tree of Life is knocking at our door.

Look at the leaves and twigs and branches,

Intermingling and connecting to give us more

Of what we’ve had before.

Does the growth and stagnation end for new chances

To begin with new sprouts of fresh green limbs?

Rest on solid ground and gaze upward

Into the maze of branches that allow us to soar!

  1. It’s important to keep moving forward, not get closed off, and at least answer the door when it knocks. But often fears keep us from opening doors or our hearts and I struggle with this. Your poem is a nice reminder of this fragile balance of keeping soft and not growing too hard.
