This Tree

29 Mar
a tree is my healer
wholesomeness attends me
it gladdens me to lounge under its canopy
it shields me from the blazing sun
it whispers rustling leaves soothing me
aiding me to come to balance and perspective

my earthly sojourn is headed for decline
but you, without fail, stand stalwart for me
your roots, trunk, and branches brace me
despite the reverses I face
you are constantly prepared to help me
with medicinal leaves, flowers,
and delicious crisp fruit
overwhelming my focus

There are not many things I can be sure of
but come what may, 
this tree has proven to be my link to life
and my constant health
now and forever
