Anatomy of the Remembrance Tree

Thick limbs carry our memories and suspended dreams.

Light branches gently hold our sorrows and pain aloft.

Delicate buds tightly hold to hope and possibility, closed against the season of grief.


Heartwood sustains firmly from the core, strength through past and future,

Steady in the weight of what is here.


The base is held firmly by earth and sea,

Hugging the roots with love while the world shifts around it.


The remembrance tree holds

All that was,

All that is and

All that will be with

Gentle and abiding love.

It’s all here now. 


Regret ~ Sorrow

Embracing ~ Dreaming ~ Wondering

Possibility ~ Sadness ~ Love ~ Stories ~ Joy

Honoring ~ Forgiving ~ Allowing

Hope ~ Reverence
