Rebirth and Renewal--By Christina R. Jussaume--United States

Rebirth and Renewal

The pine tree sheds needles and spreads seed each year
An old tree’s death may be near
Sometimes trees get sick with some type of disease
Little sprouts come up to please

Nature has way of replenishing all things
Not all trees have lots of rings
Some trees are not healthy from the very start
They may need more sun and heart

After fires new seedlings then must be brought in
With care their life does begin
Severe storms bring some down and then new ones grow
New seedlings do grow quite slow

The forest always shows us rebirth, just look
It is like our Holy Book
Only the strong will survive in God’s great plan
Now is time to make your stand

Rebirth is through Jesus, please do understand
God is Savior to man

  1. Christina, a wonderful poem indeed, great metaphor of life in the trees and the rebirth! Love the imagery and depth. It is indeed in all of life that we are each one unique and special and all searching for the same things. We are all in this together under the direction of God! Beautiful poem, my friend! Sheri /

  2. Dear Christina,
    God is a savior not only to man, but to all living things. Although while taking nature hikes, I sometimes stop to count the rings of a fallen tree, in your poem I see the tree as a metaphor for life itself. Beautifully written!
    Best wishes,

  3. Amazing how you write with such dedication and devotion. I can feel the words coming from the depths of your heart and mind. Very nice poem, Christina. I'm left with a smile on my face, as usual. Continued blessings!
