But show it how rooted you are in the richness of the earth.
Show it your branches spread out under the shifting skies,
The rain driving through as your leaves tremble and fall.
Show it your sap rising inside, your expanding joy and vitality,
The energy and solidity of your trunk even as the wind bends you.
Show it your bright green jewelled buds called out by the warmth of spring sun.
Show it your compassion, your wisdom from a thousand storms, a thousand springs,
A thousand winters borne.
And know the freedom, the expansion, the love that is in all things.
