Poem in Response

Having read “To the Oak Tree“, penned by the lovely and talented poetess, Annabel, a dear friend and frequent source of my inspiration – wherein she speaks of nature, love and loyalty – I wrote this poem in response…

Together, through roots and shoots
Sharing seasons in the sun
Majestic beauty unfolds
With each ring, we grow as one
