I Am a Tree

I Am a Tree
Bending, swaying, leaning, flailing
Cracking, breaking, weeping, wailing
Scarred from fires
Thirsty from droughts
Drowned by floods

But

Standing
Growing
Blooming

Bearing
Feeding
Planted
Firmly rooted.

This post is in response to the writing prompt for Bronwyn Lea’s “No Story Wasted” in Everbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives. Bronwyn’s piece uses tree imagery to remind us that we know more than we think and have experiences from which others can learn. The prompt is “Record God’s work in your life based on this statement: She is like a tree planted by streams of water.”

Everbloom releases next week, on Tuesday, April 25th, but the pre-order option is available now. Come back to The Dreamer Speaks this Friday, April 21st, for information on how you can enter to win your own copy of Everbloom. (Winners will be announced on the 25th.) I also have a piece included in Everbloom, so I hope you’ll pick up a copy sooner rather than later!
