We are like these tall and sturdy trees
Growing roots where we are planted
Stretching our branches up and out
Being nourished by
Earth – Rain -Light – Wind – Each other
Our roots – mostly invisible – connecting underground
Our branches touching
We absorb and release
We nurture ourselves and each other
Inspiring – Supporting – Holding on
When the storm comes
When the place we call home
Becomes less friendly and uncertain at times
We stand tall
Because we are held
Unlike the trees
We are not always conscious or aware
Of the myriad ways, we are being supported and nurtured
How we too have to reach through our roots and spread our branches
in this world of ours that needs us
To stay strong and resilient
But also soft and inspired
At this month’s gathering, we will explore how we
Absorb – Release – Connect
