Yes is a vulnerable word.
It leaves you wide open
like a tree.
Make the sound.
Notice the longing in the back of your throat.
Send it out now through your lips:
the best dream you have,
full of hope.
It doesn't matter that your leaves
It doesn't matter what the others
see or say.
The beautiful yes of trees
to the struggling creatures
of this world.
From Between the Doors by Susan Windle
