Before a tree
can reach the sky
it first must form its root

Actively growing
instinctively knowing
lacking this it bears no fruit

So also we human beings
are very much the same
to grow we need a base

Prayer and Meditation
provide the foundation
leading us to a sacred space

Here given strength
in the presence of God
is a place we already know

All problems solved
our fears released
solidly rooted, now we grow

I love trees and the powerful imagery and meaning of these words.
