A seed nurtured with love
Watered and fed, grows into infancy
While watching and waiting, speaking to it lovingly
The seed evolves greening, growing opening, shaping into beauty
It is planted and nurtured by hand and earth
Waning and waxing, wind blown, climbing toward the warmth of the sun.
Shivering in the cold, pulling back its beauty, retreating to keep itself protected.
What is this?
Having taken shape
appears to be a tree!
Majestic and Green with buds bursting everywhere
shimmering with fractals of light reflecting the sun’s rays
the tree is an Evergreen
Many shapes and sizes
Offers its beauty to the earth to humans
Is decorated with brilliance
It’s limbs shining bright
Filling our hearts with joy
As we celebrate the magic of the season!
Give thanks to the tree for the abundance
It offers each and every day
