Firmly Rooted–A Poem of Hope

Leaves that provided shade
And beauty have been replaced
By naked limbs that offer
Neither.

Its vibrancy stripped by the
Harsh reality of Winter
The tree now seems lifeless,
Dead.

But if the roots remain strong
Through the days of distress
Leaves will appear on the tree
Again.
