Tree of Life

Tree of Life

the tree of life
grows best in light,
and helps
to set your ways.
as each branch grows
new purpose shows
to guide you
through your days.

don’t miss a bud
or newborn leaf
that sprouts,
don’t pass them by;
for time is brief
and you will miss
their message
in disguise.

the tree of life
grows best in light,
while darkness
ends its stay.
new buds retract
and leaves refold,
and mortals
lose their way.

don’t linger
in the shadows long,
be strong,
don’t fail to try,
for darkness holds
while light unfolds
life’s gifts
to opened eyes.

a beautiful write ... the tree of life appears in so many cultures and mythologies ... and the tree itself, often a metaphor for humanity ... a global metaphor, delivered for a modern audience ... ty, DragonFly!

Kind words of encouragement for growth and guidance for daily living. Well conceived and creatively executed! Philosophy in the "Tree of Life" stands tall!!!

A beautiful work relating life, the paths one chooses. Great write.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
