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
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.
