Family Tree

The tree is planted, watch it grow,
Family drawn, from the seeds below.

Life’s intertwined like thick thorny vines,
Branches reaching for a distant skyline.

Falling and lifting, the winds always shifting.
Shaking the foundation of love we are gifted.

Roots made so strong, keep holding on,
Unable to tear apart unbreakable bonds.

The view is a beautiful sight to see,
The colorful leaves of this family tree.

I find my poems in pictures, sunsets, and in nature. Life is all about perspective. I enjoy motivating and inspiring those around me, giving new perspective to some, most surprisingly of all to myself.   Cygnet, Ohio.
