A Tree to Remember

1st of September,
Spring in Australia
thinks it’s summer.

Birthday tree,
sapling Norfolk Island Pine
begins the journey

to remember
my late mother,
treasure in my eyes.

Rain, wind, salt and heat
pray on hard scaly leaves,
majesty in growth.







mum's tree 2016


Today is the first day of spring (and my late mother’s birthday) here in the sub-tropics of Australia. Every year I take a photo of the tree with my daughter to see how much they are both growing 😉

Note: Mum passed away on the 3rd of October 2010 and I planted the Norfolk Island Pine in 2013.
