Fertility Tree

in this muddled and murky urban place
i behold a tree
fingertips of beautilful long and slender leaves
a curvaceous trunk holds her steady

with a legacy as amazing amazon queen of the city
she wears her battle scars well
solid, graceful, fertile, dignified
she has bled the blood of her ancestors

she's given birth
to a forest of trees
she was not without strong roots
her seeds had been sown
she stands unbreakable, unbendable, unafraid

in the chaos and peace of my knowing
i feel our connection
hear stories pouring from her branches
of her life in this muddled and murky urban place
where she was not meant to survive
