    A tree grows inside her
    She is the root to lifes eternity
    Confined in flesh, her souls lies captive
    Yet she sprouts branches of new life,
    new trees, so she may live forever

    Her souls are her thrones
    placed in the east and west,
    diagonally connected to her eden
    On her thrones her pearls lie dormnant
    dormnant until a spirit fills them up inside

    A sprout evolved from the union of spirit and soul
    Petals begin to bend and take shape
    Dancing to the beat of an eternal drum
    as she guards her ever changing pearls
    by the root of her manifestation
    Nourishing them, providing directions to them,
    guiding and molding them toward their lifes path
    keeping them safe and warm in the very womb
    that yearns to escape her fleshy prison

    A tree grows inside her
    A beautiful tree filled with the sap of her beginnings
    A strong tree that will sprout many branches
    A firm tree that will continue to give her life

    Parting her tree from eden won't be easy
    As this is more than a replica of herself
    It is herself reborn over and over again
    while her roots get stronger with each
    branch.

    As her flesh wears down from
    the weathering of the elements
    she knows not death
    Death is a magnificent awe, and the
    slightest recognition of it only comes
    with each parting of her pearl
    Death is eternal life in the realm of her darkness

    As a Tree Grows Inside Her
    She is a never yeilding Tree of life

    Wow. The concept, your word choice, your imagery...all fabulous. A woman gives life in so many ways, through her womb, her wisdom, her struggles, her nurturing soul. Purple, this was outstanding!

    Hi Sister PurpleMoons
    Awesome poem sis.
    I love the feel of your flow
    and how the tree that grows
    within have a connection
    That branch outward
    As time moves on. It is from that beginning
    that we will never have an ending
    Much love sis. Brilliant!

    Peace~N~Love
