BRANCHES IN TIME~by Heather Burns


 

 

BRANCHES IN TIME

A young tender
branch
is easily bent 
into submission

as time goes
by
maturity begins
to set in
the branch
grows stronger

With each passing
day
she becomes able to
carry the leaves
attached

until one day
raising her arms
high into the sky
a mature branch
emerges
refusing to bend
anymore.
