Below is the poem of the week entitled We Are which was written by poet Andrea Dietrich.

We Are

” You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars.” We put down roots and bear our fruits. With dear offshoots, we are like trees. Stars wink their eye, burn bright and die. No asking why - we are like these! Written Dec. 7, 2014 by Andrea Dietrich for theme #2 for the Desiderata Poetry Contest of nette onclaud
