Skewed: The Tree

rocky springs tree april 28

The tree was skewed

representing life

a beautiful image

of  perseverance and strife


Its struggles were many

a testament to time

still living fully

never sublime


Having seen battles

poor land management

it lives in the moment

present as a testament


The sun filters through

it has been saved

now living healthy

there are many who gave


It has inner beauty

birds make a nest

singing happy songs

helping the tree to rest


Meditation over

marveling at God’s grace

joyful in survival

at life’s race
