Being a tree

being-a-tree

Let me be a tree,
touching the sweet earth.
Reaching up,
and applauding
the heavens.

Making a home
for visitors.
Nourishing myself,
and others.
Giving shelter
to the stranger!

Welcoming the sun
each morning.
Paying homage
to the brilliant night sky.
Dancing in the wind,
and drinking living waters.

Changing with the seasons.
Contented in need,
and in plenty.
Worshiping in adversity.
Accepting my place
on this planet.
Blossoming where I’m planted!
