Living Hope by Thompson Emate

Thompson Emate | Apr 26th, 2022 | poetry | No Comments


From a tender shoot,
It thrived and persevered,
Its boughs uncaged,
Form a huge canopy,
Its foliage,
Green and lustrous,
Its bark was a canvas for love inscriptions,
Children ran around under its shade,
The solitary seekers sat
under to meditate in the sunset,
A mighty storm arose,
It shook the town to its foundations,
It tore apart the weak,
It fell,
The tree fell,
The roots held the fort,
Its annual rings and core,
Spoke volume of its strength and resilience,
Good wood, good fibre,
Good wood, good life.
