The Seasons of the Tree

Spring brings
a budding
new life
to all that is green
a promise
of replenishment

in full dress
trees drink in the nutrients
from the sun
through the ground
that they may bless the earth

Fall costumes
the trees don their colors
the leaves celebrating
their job finished for the year
sharing their joy
giving us a show

baring their nakedness
the true character
of the tree branches are now seen
ever patient
awaiting a new season of growth
