Tree Poem

Tree Poem

I went for a walk

To touch some trees

I came to one

And

I held out my hand to its heart

I wrapped my arms around

One of its branches

And asked

Are you sad to be losing your leaves?

And what I heard was this

Are you kidding…

My beautiful halo of green leaves

Each one a promise

Now falling

Yellow, orange and red,

Wishes of mine…fulfilled

Each flying with the wind

Creating room for my new dreams

And so it is with you child

As your heart opens

All of your dreams become real
