The Lone Cypress

      The Lone Cypress

A tree must stand and sink a root
By virtues in a seed and shoot
Where Providence has dropped the seed
To live according to a creed
Beneath the sun that shines on all
Upon the earth where rain will fall
In vales and meadows rich with loam
In nooks and crannies scant a home
A tree will find what earth will give
Since God so wills a seed to live.

Rich Tassinari 3/4/16

Along 17 mile drive in Monterey, a cypress tree stands upon rock above the coast overlooking the ocean.

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.
