Tree on a Hill
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

         Tree on a Hill

Standing out atop a hill
Above the path I walk each day,
A symbol of the blood He spilled
For me that I might find my way.

This tree I missed in seasons past
When limbs were bare or stitch in green,
But autumn’s morning light is cast
To christen what had gone unseen.

Today, the tree is robed in red
Adorned with shining flakes of gold
Embroidered by one tensile thread
Unbroken which I now behold.

And when the tree has shed its red,
Likes drops of blood upon the ground,
I’ll see again the life I shed,
A newer life in Him I’ve found.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
