My Cart 


Rebecca Morse


The tree outside my window
Though heavily laden with snow
 does not lament its burden:

It simply waits
for a good strong wind
or a sunny day.

Rebecca, This poem is a good metaphor for humans and said so simply. Let go, and wait. I find it sustaining. Thank you. Jo

Haiku-like in its beauty.

Short and sweet. A good beginning for a new poet!

It's so simple, yet one of the most difficult graces in the world to find. Beautifully put ~ Judy

I love this. I have often thought the same about the sparrows huddled in that tree. Patience. Acceptance.
