Mother Tree

Moss of miniature forests
the mother tree
now a sentinel on the ground
gives home to tiny creatures
who burrow in her breast
a comfort to all who come
just as she was when
she stood tall.

Motherhood, to bring forth life
then nurture it is an honor
yet an impossible task
a delicate balance between
supporting and letting go
requiring wisdom and patience
few of us have
so we muddle though it
doing the best we can
secretly wishing this job
came with an instruction manual.
