a taller tree of love: a haiku (and a prose)

taller treeHe now knows this truth

love means taller straighter route

tree beyond compare ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Standing still and guarding a precious tender love is a very hard thing. Often impossible. First he needs to be true. Then he needs to see from a perspective higher than the rest. He needs divine strength inside out. “Love with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his mind, and with all his strength.” A tall call. If not tall, it will not be worth the love. So he stretches himself until he stands taller than the rest. He lifts up all his branches skyward. To the blue beyond.
