My Yesterdays, Todays, Tomorrows

My Yesterdays, Todays, Tomorrows My ‘not-just-six relatives’ tree enlivens… living thriving struggling clinging reminders even ‘dead wood’! Bringing life anew reveals… one and all grandparents parents mothers and fathers siblings aunts and uncles cousins husbands, offspring grandchildren and adoptees! Infusing roots silently penetrate… bringing nourishment embracing darkness sharing wisdom fostering foundation. Bulging expanding trunk engages… fascinating encounters chirpers peckers rings with Mother Nature. Soaking sun branches explore… unfathomable lofty places panoramic vision surprising sprigs. Sparkling festive leaves escort… bright coloring mindful of our seasons crispy shiny growth maturation and demise respite for renewal. Exploding fragrant blossoms invite… flying newbies to share space squatters to temporary home buzzing news for the times. Sharing reputes my ‘not-just-six relatives’ tree wisely… remembers enhances beautifies unifies the rumors. Creating cherished fondness in memories, embraces… my yesterdays todays tomorrows.
