Hollow – A Poem


Pour out your heart
into hollowed roots
Be the tree that
no storm can wither
For even dreams
have roots & yet
they stand firm
& forever grounded
May your pain be
washed away by rain
May your roots
breathe in love
& breathe out hate
May your days
be filled with sunlight
And may hollow, be hollow no more.

    There is magic in trees…they shelter us, protect us, honor us, and are the keepers of our secrets.
