Wonder

who planted a tree
in the middle of the ocean
and nurtured it to life?

how did its roots
get a hold of the seabed
and secure to a base?

how did its shoot
survive the undercurrents
and spring above the sea?

who shall number the days
of a tree that dwells in the ocean
or chronicle its tales?

One thought on “Wonder”

  1. Very difficult question at the end of this deep piece. It can only be He, who’s life. Really ‘Wonder’. God bless you, brother.
