"Beauty: Old vs New" by sunnilicious

How to love the seed that would grow into a tree?
I visualize the tree that fruited the seeds
as I roam through the garden barefoot and carefree
in a flowy flaxseed dress ornate with bright beads.

and watch it grow stronger through the years to bear hugs,
bringing abundance as the years pass with great roots.

Those grocery store cherries are fashionable
and cherry wine brings that charmer the right answer.
Thinking smart lets us spring forward with the old ways,
and still enjoy some of the trends that deserve praise.
