The Potential of a Branch

Location

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
