we are the trees

walk amongst the joys 

fallen from their trees 

to pad the path of promise 

drifting to the earth and draw 

goodness from branches granting goodwill 

returning back to soil’s roots 

we are the trees along the trail 

what falls from us is 

what nourishes us 

I want to feed on love 

so I open my heart 

letting love be the leaves of my tree
