The Tree of Life

Post

A drawing of a luscious tree, bleeding to death.
A luscious tree, bleeding to death with nothing to stop the wounds.

Connecting earth with heaven.
Connecting space with time.
Connecting life with death.
Connecting the elements of life.
Connecting souls.

Yet dying:
for praise.
for care.
for love.
for acceptance.

For if it dies, all dies.
                                  Death too.

-al mumeet (the bringer of death)
