Bearing Fruit: The Mother Tree




A woman is a tree of life;

the heavens know her grace.

In her is found an essence that

eclipses time and space.

She reaches heavenward, her fingers

branching toward the sun

and winds her roots through rocks and dirt

to bless the work she’s done...

to feed and anchor tender shoots

by her good seed begun.
