The Lonely Tree

the lonely tree 
dies each winter. 
to care for it, no one takes the time

frailty fear famine fading finished.
yet the lonely tree still stands

the bitter coldness ends and the rains begin

At last! 

the lonely tree is nudged back to life and proudly offers blossoms of delight

bold brilliant beaming blazing boundless (the sun) nourishes,
the lonely tree flourishes.
how long can it possibly live
before it has given everything it has to give?
