The Poetic Tree

I'm a poetic tree by nature---took me awhile to develop my forms, like a tree takes awhile to develop its limbs before it can bear true edible fruit. Like all who are fortunate, I was but an able seedling at start before i took root, sprouted and grew. I'm shooting high for heaven now, I'm casting shadow for my friends' who might need refuge at my side, my roots are always moving out toward another, my bark carries fresh sap to my leaves on the chance that when my roots find right union with another root from another tree, good fruit I will bear then and drop to the earth as seed so that a new tree can sprout and find its place beside me and begin the beautiful cycle anew.
