Branching Out

To all my branches
I say hello
To all my roots
I love you so
All of this Tree
Stable trunk
The always new
Old woman me
Embodying the whole
Little and fragile
New beginnings
Stretching out
Vulnerable and weak
But given strength
Little by little
By these roots
Strong and breeding life
Never afraid
Branching Out
