Pray for me, for it is not my time to go

Pray for me, for my branches provide shelter and homes for many creatures

Pray for me, that I may reach further into the sky year after year

Pray for me, to see many more seasons, spring, summer, fall and winter

Pray for me, to shelter you from the sun and summer heat

Pray for me, to shade your home

Pray for my pine cones to continue to feed the animals

Pray for my seeds to grow more of me

Please pray for me, for I am in danger of destruction

And I, with the best seat in the house

Stepping on the beach

Heat penetrating my souls

Fire between my toes

We were friends since childhood, now teenagers

I start to tremble with anticipation as he grabs my hand,

Knees weak and shaking beneath me, as he takes me in his arms.

I melt into him, my heart beating hard and fast,

As he kisses me under the star lit night.

A pencil meets a paper

Like a brush meets a canvas

Creating a line, a shape

Transforming that shape into an object

Shading and refining the piece

Bringing it to life
