The ancient eavesdropper

Open boughs

I welcome
the New Year
with open boughs
& plant my high
hopes in the
ground —
so much
depends on
the progression 
of a small seed
into a giant tree —
may we
cultivate
the foresight
of caring &
compassion–
adding
another
growth ring
of truth —
deepening
& strengthening
the roots of all
life on Earth.
