I Am An Oak Tree

I am an Oak Tree

A Poem by Joan Kappes

I am an Oak Tree

Content with being who I am with no desire of being another

I am an Oak Tree

My growth is slow, steady and sure

 

 

I am an Oak Tree

My Roots are deep and wide

I am an Oak Tree

Whose trunk is filled with years of wisdom-bearing rings

I am an Oak Tree

My boughs bend and sway with the wind and rain

I am an Oak Tree

I let go of one season, rest, then embrace the next

I am an Oak Tree

Offering shade and nourishment to those in need

 

I am an Oak Tree

I have all that I need

I am an Oak Tree

Living only in the Now

I am an Oak Tree

My leaves open eagerly to absorb the warmth and nourishment of Light

 

 

I am an Oak Tree

I know who I am – Solid, Majestic, Beautiful

I am an Oak Tree

I AM.

Today’s “leaping” exercise:  Copy or print this reflection.  Find an oak tree in your yard, neighborhood or park.  Uninterrupted, slowly read the poem (out loud or silently) 3 or more times.  Be touched by its strength and inspiration.  Allow yourself to “Come to the Edge Today” and soar with its truth.

 

I am an Oak Tree…and so are You – Joan Kappes
