NEW BIRCH BEGINNINGS

NEW BIRCH BEGINNINGS

Only God can make a tree,

Been years since painting one for me…

A cancellation

Brought participation,

A class for the elderly!

My worry was shaking hands,

Picture painting hasĀ  certain demands…

Lucky for me

A birch tree,

And its wiggly trunk still stands!

The instructor put a cardinal in mine,

On a snow-cover branch so fine…

And “fly specks” too

Of snow that flew,

We pictured it at wintertime.
