Gently now,
Or I shall curl inward
To wither against
Your touch. But if
You must; till the soil
Around me with
A loving spade;
And when you prune
My branches, do it
With such weeping
That I will forget my pain.
For I have grown frail
From all the seasons
In the past. And if
Then you require
That I bloom bravely
With your caress;
Let the water flow
Softly into my roots
And capture the meekest
Sun upon my petals
To rest.

Ahhh, if only such sensitivity could spread to all those who are in touch with trees and plants. A beautiful delicate reminder of the oneness of all life and an invitation to LISTEN.

Thank you and welcome to the Peak!
