the moontree

 the changing of the seasons
 often marks a kind of   beginning

 one that, for me, involves a balance
 of letting go and holding on

 in the fall, the trees rich with color
 remind me to look forward

 but as the leaves begin to fall
 to also let go


 the trees reach deep below to  their roots
 for strength to stand tall

 and high above to the moon for the promise that
 change, a new beginning and new growth
 is soon to come…

 so i too reach for my own roots
 and my own moon

 and invite you to do the same

 finding strength in where we have been
 standing tall in who we are now and
 looking forward to where we are going
