And growing still.
I like to remember with love
Those who planted our trees.
They exist in our roots
And nurture our present
From our past.
Yes! I like to remember too Colleen. ❤
🙂 I knew you would Diana ❤
Very interesting! I never thought of that. Something good to think about! So glad they took the time to plant our trees!
Thank you Priceless. Without them….
I will remember this post with love, Colleen.
Thank you Ann. You’ve planted your own trees. ❤
Thank you Paulette ❤
“I think that I shall never see…..” But your poem is as lovely as a tree. 🎄
Awwwwww, thank you Van!!!!! 🙂

You are welcome, Colleen. 🙂 ❤
yes, me too-
We and our trees Beth ❤
Very nice Colleen xx
Thank you Lyn 🙂
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!
That’s a wonderful thing to do Peter!!!!! I have planted trees in my life, and thought the very thing. 🙂
I only wish I’d planted an Oak 50 years ago!
Oh…. well, plant one now Peter! 🙂
I now have my acorn. I’ll plant it on 1st January so he will always know his date of conception! If I tell him his story he will be able to tell all children in the future.
Now there’s a picture for you to draw!
Yes it is!!!!! The acorn, the story, the tree, the future!!!!! I LOVE IT PETER!
I really look forward to that Colleen. May you and your family have a peaceful Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.
And to your family Peter, the same. A happy and wonderful Christmas and happy, healthy new year.
🙂 You’re welcome.
Thank you! 🙂
Thank’s for the reply on mom’s blog. I wasn’t sure where to post a thank you but i thought this one seemed good. she gave me things i can grow from.
You’re welcome Rachel. Thank you for taking the time to visit with me.
Your mom gave us all things to grow from. What a wonderful thing for you to remember and carry with you.
Merry Christmas Rachel.
Yes, I thank those who came before me for the lessons they ingrained upon my DNA. Roots mean the world to how we grow, Colleen. ❤
Indeed they do Robin, it keeps us grounded or sets us loose and floating unattached.
Beautiful image of stillness and growth.
Thank you Mark.
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 🙂
Thank you Sam. I will. 🙂
