The Potential of a Branch


The arm of the wise old oak

Outstretched and strong today

Opening his embrace to forst children forever


A walking stick for the wanderers, lost

Serendipitous and temporary today

A guide for the uncharted adventure, forever


The handle of a witch's broom

Mysterious and magical today

Waiting to take off to the sky forever


A sword for the youngest knight

Strong and sure today

The vanquisher fo the mind's dragon forever


A cane for the old blind man

Gnarled and knobbed today

A friend when knowledge stands alone, forever


The pole of the lifelong fisherman

Flexible and infallible today

A way and source of life forever
