Acorns

Gustave Courbet – The oak of Flagey

what’s an acorn
but a possible oak–

we too are acorns
waiting, struggling
becoming the tree–

not there yet
but we’ll be–

*

new year is here
start–
forget the acorn
be the tree–

why stay the same
if we can be
so much more–

– – –
Inspired by the lecture of Ven. Robina Courtin. Happy New Year to my dear readers & friends.
