The Sweet Pea Tree

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.


I look into my mind to view the beautiful sweet pea tree that grows tall and fruitful. Her colors are bright, her blossoms flowing gentle in the wind. Her roots grow deep within a grounded faith. Her branches reach out with the hope of a thousand rivers flowing to nourish her kindred spirit.

Her fruit is sweet, her love is deep.
I am blessed forever by her kind spirit.
The years that have past remind me I once was young.
The years to come will produce ever sweeter fruit from the young off shoots of her branches.

I have learned and unlearned from this blessed soul. Her living essence provides, protects, and produces crucial lessons for one who lives in Lennoxville. There the thinking is simple. Life is most always fabulous. If I could live there I would plant a sweet pea tree!

I love the image that goes with this, your art is evocative and the words match the picture of the sweet pea tree. This is reminiscent, to me, of the far away trip taken on the Yellow Submarine by John and George. I also truly love the message: "Life is most always fabulous." Someone told me just this morning that if we wake up and our coffee is good, the sun is up...it's going to be a good day. Your attitude is much the same and it's a breath of fresh air. Nice work!
