Old Oak Me...(I mean) Tree

Sunday, January 10, 2010

My friend shared this & I just had to pass it on...it is so like me.


Im getting old like the old oak tree I used to swing on as a child, my bones creek when the wind blows, I have slowed down no longer growing up but out, my limbs are faltering less leaves, and my wisdom are in the roots that reach deep into the earth. Now when a child gets on that swing and sings I get excited and my leaves sing in the wind of joy of new life
...by my friend Jiiniikwe



Also a reminder that we produce fruit, too just like that old oak tree

    THANKS..enjoyed that post!

I live amongst some very old (200 + ) trees and one had the old hoop swing put up by my ancestors. When the old trees finally come down, I greet those situations with great sadness. We keep planting more..so there will always be more tress maturing around us.
