There was a big old tree in the front yard where I grew up. From as early as I can remember I climbed that tree and could spend hours up there just watching the happenings around me. From the stray cats to the kids out playing and the cars going by, I sat, unknown to … Continue reading O’ Majestic Tree
Along God's path and nature's wrath, I follow Faith in life's aftermath. On the way I find lost pieces of my mind, fabrics of memories and fragments of time, where tears water the destroyed gardens, uprooted in their prime, too early to consider rebirth, still unable to master peace of mind.
