The Roots of a Tree



As someone who loves nature, animals and life I look into the skies, watch the trees and love the deer that visit me in my yard and love secretly feeding them sometimes ooopsy 😉 but, how can I not they love apples. I don’t do that too often though, I don’t need trouble and Bambi will forget the woods are the other way lol. My love for the scenery of where I live and the country feel; and the sense of calmness that I get on a great day with just me and nature.

The roots of my tree you strengthen me

an uprising you bring out of me I stand tall

and firm you see?

My branches are long and strong

I am natures finest creature a silent gem to some.

The animals they love me and gather around me

they love to find shelter and cuddle up against me.

The humans take pictures in front of me and

some learn the value of life in me.

My leaves have sense to leave a trace of legacy

they come in all shapes, sizes, colors and forms

they dance with the wind in celebration of life

what wonderous world we live in some don’t think


The Roots of a tree can teach us a thing or two

if we just take the time to look, listen, and watch it

speaks it soul to us as it shines through no one wants

to believe it a tree talks to you.
