Grow and Bloom

There’s this tree

planted with care

it’s going to grow

a memory

of a woman

that touched me

deep roots

will go down

branches will spread wide

a shelter 

refuge

shade on hot days

Flowers will bloom

after many, many 

days that turn into nights

the bean pods

will tease

tantalize

year after year

reminders

that good things

like beauty

friendships

trust

take time to grow

just like this tree

that was planted

in the perfect place

to be
