Roots

by Mark Weinrich

It is easy to forget
in refreshing shade
the bond and blessing
in the depth beneath.

Where the contact 
is wondrous in bearing up
the flight and flow of life.
For it defies the force
that would pull it down
and yet anchors the tree
in place.

Always remember
the roots of trust 
Christ wants to grow in us, 
the flow of His Spirit
bearing fruit and
ever lifting up.
