Tree of Life

Tree of life

Tree of Life, Margaret Mair, original art

We are
The roots,
The trunk,
The branches
Of this great tree
Of life,
Our soil
Made fertile by
The richness of
Lives and words
Of learning and knowing
And loving and sharing
Bequeathed to us
By those whose before
Created us;
Our fragile leaves
Reaching out
Tremble in the
Faint breath
Of those
Yet to come.
We are
The roots,
The trunk,
The branches,
But
We are nothing
Without them,
Only ourselves,
Alone.

Written by Margaret Mair
