Oh, to grow parallel to a forest of trees

I wish to outstretch my limbs

Grow tall and sturdy with a raised chin

But gentle enough to let the world in

Fold creatures beneath the safety of my leaves

Absorb the sun and catch the breeze

Oh, to grow parallel to a forest of trees

    I know that I have only just discovered your blog thanks to you liking a post on my blog (thank you for that), but after reading some of your poetry I truly wish to nominate you for a Blogger Recognition Award. I have read only a few of your poems so far, but I loved every single one of them, so, if you wish to accept this award, I nominate you. https://imprintswemake.com/2019/06/21/blogger-recognition-award/
