A New Year’s Message from a Tree

IMG_2534
This year
May I be strong
May I be flexible
May I bend in the winds
And never break.

This year
May I be wise
May I be humble
May I provide refuge in my arms
For those who are weak.

This year
May I see farther
May I take the long view
May I remember I am
One a part of the whole creation.

This year
May I lift my arms in praise
May I lift my arms in awe
May I remember I am
Beautiful, loved and cherished just as I am.
