The Snow Tree

It woke slowly
from its
winter slumber,
black brown branches
looking
lifeless
for 
so long.
Dead?
Just waiting
for the
right time.

Slowly,
pale buds appearing
curled up
tight,
cups 
opening
wider and wider,
gradually.
Life from 
far below
trekking
imperceptibly
up
to the farthest point.

But as the 
buds
multiplied
so did the birds
to eat and peck.
The buds would be
all gone!
Oh no!
There will never
be enough!

As I watched
day in
and
day out
I saw that
life is not
scarce
or 
puny.
Life is
abundant,
new
and renewed.
More than enough
always.

In her dream
a tree
came out
of her side.
The Tree of Life
on which
Life is given
for all.
Abundantly.
Generously.
Exuberantly.
More than
enough
always.
