Constant: A Tree of Emotion

big tree reservoir overlook natchez trace

 

 

The tree sits quietly

being constant in the land

branches representing life

in the environmental band

 

Each branch is an emotion

active through the years

the trunk is steady

listening with nature’s ears

 

One branch is fear

when the storms come

rain, snow, and ice

cause damage when done

 

Another branch is joy

when it is warm and inviting

this is a time of plenty

the journey is exciting

 

Another branch is sadness

when things begin to die

it takes much energy

using the leaves to cry

 

In the end

the tree perseveres

living each moment

more joy than tears
