Unsheltered for D’verse


I don’t know God, but I know His tree.

No pillar of salt but might as well be.

Planted in place, it cannot flee,

but curls its toes in the loam that is home.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.

    I liked the sound of this. And the toe curling in the loam.

    The tree of life is a wonderful symbol, so rich and filled with meaning. I like this emphasis on its rootedness. (K)
