Like A Forest


This life is like a forest and our world is but a tree
and humanity is a flow of many colors like an abundant growth of leaves
each spread out and grow reaching toward the sky
and when the time is right we break loose and start to fly
but like the changing seasons our flight is soon a fall
we reach out like a weary hand and embrace heaven's call.

  4. I love this. "We are all leaves on the same tree". And so we are. I also like the "weary hand" that embraces heaven's call. Wow. This poem has depth.

  8. I like the way you went with this and the metaphors are right on the mark. I think some people don't care for fall because they feel that ticking clock as in the autumn of their years. I am always refreshed by fall though.
    I really love the saying" we are all leave of the same tree"..beautiful.

  15. Carrie,
    This was beautiful; I loved the vision I had reading it~ We have random moments and moments of impact, before we descend to our final dance~
