Tree of Life

Tree to keep hope
tree to dream on
wise trees to live by
if you can not be a kind tree, then speak to a kind tree
a fool thinks theirself to be wise, but a tree knows exactly what it is
trees are the treasure of a wise person, that, and knowledge
a tree lets no one come to it without leaving happier
this is a wonderful tree, I have never seen this one before
tread softly and respect the grand old tree
… every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.

Thanks to this tree and prompt by Eugi.

  1. I enjoyed this because of its heartfelt tone! I love trees and yes, every green tree or a tree in its natural state is far better than one made of gold or silver. Thank you for participating.
