Life's tree

by Amy Niggel

Our family tree has grown
sprouting tender green shoots
they will grow and bloom in their time.

For now they continue to reach higher
while anchored to branch
drawing strength, giving nourishment.

This tree can continue to grow
without fear of toppling
because it is rooted in love.


Author's Note: Just thinking about the birth of our third child and how our family has only gotten stronger with each new addition.
