Mother Trees

Mother trees hold

baby green leaves

tight and tenderly

much as they once held

the child me who sought

play and refuge among

their supportive branches.

  1. Love this metaphor, Joan. I read an article today you might like about a children’s book called “The Tree in Me”. https://www.brainpickings.org/2021/04/16/the-tree-in-me-corinna-luyken/
