Branches

a sapling
trying to grow
to find her way
closer to the sky

it was a lonely business
being a tree
no other trees near
none to hold

she gained a leaf
then lost it
still alone
others too far to touch

rooted as she was
made contact difficult
until growing
became branching out

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
