Oh how high beyond
anything posing sky
birth the best in life.
Oh how deep beyond
reach the rest of source.
Grow woman-child, grow up
we and be
all that glories in shameless living
spilling, flowing all
in the face of life’s hardest stories,
branches wrapping ’round us all
birthing newness and wisdom
in those bestowed with parenting
singing us all to renewal.
jrk – in awe of my temporary role of facilitator and witness of the emergence of one magnificent soul.

Beautiful poem! I found a tree song from you!

Thank you…it’s easy enough with such inspiration. 🙂 Thanks for dropping in…
Your words captured so much and the photos are precious. … this touched something inside of me and I grieve the loss of witness, facilitator, of roots, and even the tree. But marvelously written and thanks for sharing your words.
thank you for sharing your response to this… strength to you…
I love that we have been bestowed the ability to mother each other. To pull strength from earth as we fill our lungs each day.

I count myself as one of those who grows and glows in Your words!!! THANK YOU and Big Hugs and Namaste. 🙂
You have a knack for evoking a lump in my throat when you so openly and passionately respond. Thank you, love. I really felt inadequate with this poem but you’ve richly wiped that out. Big big hugs…
Well of course your daughter would be as magical as you. 🙂 I love this!
So sweet…thank you Kristy.

This is wonderful. Wood nymph, sprite, mother earth, nature herself. Birth and renewal, song and dance. Good writing, Cuz. 😀
thank you! my daughter and i come from a long line of wood nymphs, sprites and earthy creatures. i love that she spontaneously delighted in that tree. had my cell phone and quickly captured the moment.
