Towering Beauty

Photo By: Carrie

High Sierra near Rock Creek

Wide
at the base
roots
clinging
to cracks in the worn rock towering
elevated
where the air is
thin
and the seasons are harsh
wrapped
branches wildly shaped
beautiful
as a whole being shading
my family
from the high altitude sun
searing
through anything exposed for too long
reaching
for more growth finding
strength
from the inside out never desperate only
resolute
in surviving
within
this
beauty
