Happy To Live Another Season of Life April 15, 2012

My gnarled branches are old and bent

my trunk is thick with rings of age

Younger trees, grown only to my knees

play tag with the blowing wind

Moss and lichen cling to my heavy bark

Scars from insects and birds riddle my body

Many storms I have weathered

Hundreds of branches lost and regrown

and yet I stand, regal and proud

New growth adorning me

crooked fingers reaching skyward

happy to live another season of life.

    This is such vivid imagery. The lines are so fluid and loaded with emotions. And oh, what resolve in the final line! I love it.
