We Grow


And growing still.

Family Tree

I like to remember with love

Those who planted our trees.

They exist in our roots

And nurture our present

From our past.

  4. “I think that I shall never see…..” But your poem is as lovely as a tree. 🎄

  5. Lovely. I often gather self seeded saplings from my garden and plant them out along my daily walk route. I relish the thought of them outlasting me by many years!

    Thanks for sharing! I liked the ‘roots’ theme. I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to look? Today’s poem is about a very earthy lady! Have a good day, Sam 🙂
