The Staff of Life

The Staff of Life

the staff of life is plunged into the earth once again
for the renewal of life is about to begin
the staff was a branch of the previous tree
now newly planted, it is growing to be

a branch of what was stripped of roots and its leaves
has the essence of life and the memory of trees
what it will become depends on how it is nourished
the light it receives and how the soil is refurbished

water is essential, much more than elemental
water carries the emotions, the prayers, layers and layers
the collective decisions, it writes the revisions
water will be the future and what we must nurture

yes nurture

for as for life to be, exotic and free
the staff of life is responding
and the weave is corresponding
to what we conceive from what we believe
