Tree of Life

Teetering like a doll with a faulty leg,

Reaching for an explosion of color;

Vibrant, shimmering, inviting.

Aromas of life swirling, seeping

Eyes illuminated, senses tickled.

Leaning forward, I forge on

Your arms like a log in a raging river.


Certainty in steps, with a spring and some pause.

Overwhelmed with tethers, tenuous and strong.

Wading through broken crystals, picking up keys

To open far away doors hidden by a mist.

Head full of dreams, created and nurtured

By the leaves gently rustling against my back.


Leap into the freedom of choices

Wings spread wide.

Picking, sorting, keeping, throwing

Absorbing the pearls with which to string

Gifts of love, lights of hearth.


Where once lay the path you showed,

Brick upon brick, I build my own.

Strong enough for us to stand,

Big feet, little feet; stomping, prancing.

Dancing to the crescendo, often forgetting

The first note that was played in the song.


In moments of sorrow, when the soul is hurting

I look out the window and there I find

The old and sturdy tree, proudly upright

Morning dew dripping off its falling leaves.


You are so near, and yet so far

Your essence slowly mixing with the soil

Soon to be extinct, erased from the touch

Only remnants will grace my walls.

Gone with the mist, but never from the heart

Your roots are now mine.
