Beach Day

I want to worship You
just like that tree
beautiful and strong
just knowing how to be

No shame in a
broken branch or three
Bird poop here or there
that's the way you're
supposed to be

Grooves in your trunk
branches flying high and sprawled
You nurture and are nurtured
provide comfort and shade
you soak up the sun

You take in and
give out
sheltering other creatures
but by your very nature
you shelter your own roots
so you can continue
to be
thick and fat
trunk planted wide
spindly branches
leaves long and lithe
you are all strong
and blythe
