10,000 wooden warriors stand tall near the river’s edge Anticipating a botanic brawl the generals make a wedge The Maples fierce and proud bark at the pernicious Pine Branching the battles boughed entrapping the venal vine *** The Aspen and the Birch alliance together they are strong The Hickory and Elm’s defiance rumble in as they prolong Shrubs and leaves pay homage to all the damaged goods Thus now left in bondage as you enter the wounded woods.

How do they do it, stand there, daily, catching both rainbows and catastrophes? Would I ever be able to endure all they go through, just for a chance tryst with the wind on a dark winter night? Enjoyed your words, made me ponder ElsaRoses

I like this. I think we should all be like an oak- strong and immovable. (I know I have learned to be, through moments that have pushed at me, and with such force) I hate hearing that you have had the flu. I am happy that you are feeling some better. I see that you have won in this contest, along with many others. Congratulations my dear friend. Love and Strength. ~ Brandy
