Parallel to a Forest

I wish to outstretch my limbs

Stand tall and sturdy against strong winds

But gentle enough to let the world in

Offer shelter within my leaves

Soak up 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.
