TREE

 

TREE

Gnarled. Burnt. Cracked. Broken.

Craggy, Shaggy and Worn.

Bent. Scarred. Bare. Twisted.

Creaking, Beaten and Torn.

Alive through storms and winters,

Fires and droughts;

Patiently awaiting the passing of each new trouble.

There is always trouble:

Trouble behind and trouble ahead.

Trouble can be counted on.

So too the tree:

Never wandering, stands alone and strong;

Stately and noble;

More beautiful with each passing trial.
