the sap is rising

the trees of the lord are full of sap...(psalm 104:16)

winter is passing
and in the trees
the sap is rising
sticky and sweet
even the old one*
feels young again
i saw her this morning
radiant and glistening
with jewels

Stacy this is beautiful - I am doing a lot of personal work around trees as a metaphor for my experience and I appreciate this post today. I'd like to reference it in days to come!
