Cedars of Lebanon

Tree of honor born from the cedars of Lebanon
No seed does it drop and it not know where
Absorbing the heat to provide a haven of shade
Seasons and storms cause no threat
No cutting words can perpetrate its bark
A sapling mirrors its sway in the daystar’s light
Majestic and true, august and firm
Friendly and kind always waving never wavering
Never can the seed of this produce anything but a Cedar of Lebanon

    This is a very good poem. It made me think. I guess God is like the Cedars of Lebanon. Always welcoming and protecting. Never wavering. And those are the thoughts that your poem gave to me. Thank you. It is a beautiful poem about a strong beautiful tree. Congratulations on having your poem featured this week.

    Congrats Mark on the featured write. So, are you allowed to say if the site has been sold or not? I have had an unanswered email into PS for a while now about a technical problem. Anyway, it's been a great site, hope it remains the same. Hope you can write me back at least. Thanks. Love, Shar
