How to Be a Tree – A Poem

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

How do I love and feel fresh in each new moment?

How do I become alive?
How do I grow like a tree?

From the ground up.
Build a firm foundation.
Root into fertile soil.
Root into a sunny, fruitful place.

Then, bask in the sun’s glow.

…and grow.

Grow tall and wide.
Bear fruit and blossoms.

Grow where I am.
Grow where I am planted.

Plant myself in a fertile place,
To be nourished, cherished, watered, and loved.
