Thursday Tree Love: Sycamore Survivor

tree sycamore thru leaves

Every year she sheds her bark

And often leaves me gifts.

Heart in Bark on green

She’s survived many hurricanes

Diana, Bertha, Fran, Floyd, Florence…

Bertha, or maybe Fran, in ’96

Stretched her roots

And lifted her skirt,

But she reached down deep

And held on for dear life.

She’s leaned westward ever since –

Not over the neighbor’s house

More over the backyard.

She grew a second trunk for balance.

Tree sycamore trunk

When I lay hands on her

I can feel her humming.

If experts say she must come down

I will have to go away.

But she is safe for now.

She releases her round stars

And waits for another spring.

One-Liner Wednesday: The Tree That Didn’t Give Up

Don’t give up.

tree fell but didnt give up

Don’t give up.

Rest when you need to

Close to the earth

Seeking a new path

To sustain you.

You will survive.

You will grow.

You will enlighten.
