The tree grounded in the soil
roots going deeper,
entangled in each other
snuggling in earth's lap.
Spring to Summer
Monsoon to Autumn,
shed leaves everywhere,
golden hue carpet,
speaking its stories
of times and storms.
Slowly, paving way
for cold, stark Winter.
The tree has weathered
branches shook in hurricane,
snow numbing its fruit,
heat scorching its trunk,
nests drenched in rains,
which birds built lovingly.
Welcome! Spring again
new innocent buds
blooming in abundance.
The tree rooted in the soil
stands ever so firmly,
head held high,
speaking its eternal truth
of cycle of life, as it lives on...
