The Tree In The Winter
My father seems so strong.
Not big or huge.
Just stable and strong.
He seems to be anchored
His roots run deep.
Drawing no attention to himself.
He is like a tree in the winter
Yet deeply communicating
There is no uncertainty
Really no reason to notice.
Unless you are observant of reality.
If you are looking for color and drama
The tree in the winter is not even seen.
It contributes so much to go unnoticed.
I'm glad I took the time to see the tree,
so much like my father.
