The Tallest Tree


19 November 2020

Unbroken


The Tallest Tree

Standing there

Upright

So proud


Swaying in the wind

Bending

Rife with broken branches

And those unbroken


Refusing to break

Accepting what is

Serene yet fighting

At peace and determined


Supported, held up, lifted

By trees around

Willing it to thrive

And grow

Glow


Swaying in its dance

Not like before

But

Joyful as ever


So tall

So proud

Head high

Though sadness beckons


Joy and sadness

Coexist

Together

Nurturing my soul


I sit in my walker

Staring

Blessed by this moment

You

And lessons of the tallest tree


 

I had been out for a walk on this windy day when I stopped, as I do occasionally, to look up and around, to see what I can see. The breeze spoke to me as it worked its way through the majestic pines. I turned my walker to the side, converting it to a chair. And now you know, what came to me then...
