White Sunday

The final leaf falls And I’m bare It’s me you’re reading here What I am I’ve always been Even if I decorate my tree with colorful crystal balls I've braved a winter’s pain A summer’s swell I can spring anew and I do fall I cry like a baby and laugh through it all Cause I am who I am standing tall Seasons come and seasons go My branches reaching out to touch you Welcoming what life unfolds My roots firmly planted by a river that flows In a conscious garden The soil of heaven feeds my earthly soul

How refreshing the spiritual strength of this man-tree. One living planted and conscious of all Creation. One who withstands the seasons' wear and tear and see a sign of deeper growth and flourishing endurance. Transcendence in gratitude. Sublime poem, Arturo.

When a poet reveals such depths in their heart and soul, a beauty such as this gem is born. Who could read this and not be in awe of its depth, beauty, majesty? A fav my friend, a wondrous fav..

Arturo, a great view from a different perspective. We all grow with each new experience but know one can change who they truly are.

Wow! Oh Arturo, such superb, graceful spirituality flows like a silky stream through your poetic lines. Your first line; 'The final leaf falls ~ and I'm bare ~ it's me that you're reading here' is stunning! Your poem is striking in its metaphoric beauty. Warmest wishes to you always, I hope all is well.. ~Susan
