Living in the Green

Winter Trees II 027

Once in a while you find one that refuses to give in

refuses to let go, doesn’t even think about quitting

no matter how cold, or how much pain, they keep going

living in the green, waiting for their brothers and sisters

to catch up, patiently waiting out the winter,

hopeful, speckled with blue. We can learn a lot

from a leaf.

Peace and blessings to everyone.
