by Anna Jarrett

Look up to my canopy
Every night I dance with the stars
Look down to my roots
Reaching deep into the ground
Look out to my limbs
I have many scars and broken branches
Feel my skin –
I have shed many layers
And I am still here
Standing strong
Through the seasons and the years
I am still here
Feel me
Sink into me
Be with me
Breathe with me
I am always with you
My child
I am here
