This is one of my favorite pics. It’s of a tree at night in the courtyard of my old school. I love trees. They are a symbol of endurance and life and every leaf reminds me of moments that come and go. Of the sturdiness of life. Of beauty.

I watch the tree lose its leaves every year, this one and the ones on the river and am always amazed at how they keep coming back..even after fires have ravaged the bosque around the river. Every leaf that passed is another moment, another life, another story.

This is my life and this is my story. The limbs represent every turn the stories will take and the leaves the time it takes, and the wondrous moments involved in unraveling this quiet life. I will also share my poems with you and ask for your opinion and feedback, no matter good or bad: good feeds the soul, bad feeds the drive.

So for today, let me leave you with this old poem about a tree and I, our connection that I felt, and feel. The gnarled bark I feel in my bones and taste in the joy of reincarnation of life:

I am old.
Upon a mountaintop I roam.
There is molasses in my soul.
And the trees
Accompany me,
In this,
My journey!
Molasses flows,
Softly, sweetly, slowly..
A taste of honey,
With a slight of bitter,
There’s an ache stays with me.
It sits,
The tree stands tall,
Waiting upon the leaf to fall,
Another story for the sages.
I set frond between the pages,
Bringing story to life,
A word, or two,
Like floating blades from emerald night,
Waft down,
Land on your lips,
A gifted kiss out of heavens bliss.
I pen these words,
They’re for you my friends,
Take home and read,
That I not end.
Swirl each word about your tongue,
Memorize, save, pass to the young,

I welcome your thoughts. Was I able to capture at least a litt;e of the awe of trees?
