Tree of My Life

​Day 7 – Take a walk until you find a tree you identify with, then write a poem using the tree as a metaphor for yourself or your life.



Tree of My Life

The tree splits into branches

Right from its roots.

And on each of these branches

Grows a different fruit.



There’s the mango of compassion

And the fig of mindfulness.

The guava of acceptance

And the avocado of pure bliss.



The branches are inquisitive,

Reaching for spaces unexplored.

Naïvete gives them confidence

But society brings them crashing to the floor.
