Just As I am

The white birch groves pull me

as strongly as the most powerful

magnet -

like the family

I always longed for but never really had -

welcoming, understanding,

holding me -

I lean into them and feel myself

embraced, embraced

just as I am,

just as I am.

thoughtful and poignant
The birch tree is one of my favorite trees. I find them very fascinating and awe inspiring.

Love it! "Just as I am",brought me back to the song, Come As You Are, by Deidre Brown, also sung by Paul Gurr. The tattered and torn bark speaks volumes.

Like the broom sweeping all the dirt and dust without a moment to breathe
In that moment of breath lies the choice, Breathe people Breathe.
