Taking Notes

The trees have taught me
that strength comes with time
that patience is key
that there is a time to bloom
and a time to rest
that everything has a season
that life – both new and old – always returns
that conviction is like the deepest
most far-reaching roots
to stand tall
but to also bend and twist with grace
that sometimes parts of you have to die
for stronger things to take their place
