Day 7 -Life as a Tree

tree-338211_1280

You are planted by the water

strong and unmoving

Seasons come when your branches

hang low, bare

and your leaves crunch underfoot

Seasons come when your leaves are

green, beautiful

praising the heavens

Seasons come

but you are strong and unmoving


Poetry Challenge Day 7: Take a walk until you find a tree you identify with, then write a poem using the tree as a metaphor for yourself or your life.
