TREE OF LIFE (poem)

NIGHT LIFE by Susan  Kemp

LIFE

 

The tree of life connects –

with the cosmos

the self

others

everything

is linked to a tree

and the other way round

You may search the branches

dissect the apples

analyse the worms

and study the meaning

or simply be with the tree

Still the saps will rise

the winds will change

the tree will grow

and be

important

pregnant with meaning

a haven for birds

a receptacle for moisture

a bearer of fruits

giver of shade

lover of visitors;

welcoming rain

withstanding winds

accommodating winter

and celebrating spring

Know it for all this

when it waves at you

[by Susan Kemp]
