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
