Poem: Hand-Like-Tree

(based on a sculpture by Magdalena Abakanowicz)

Always reaching

Never still.

Always hoping

Never in despair.

Always soothing

Never hurting.

Always renewing

Never withdrawing.

Always nourishing

Never starving.

Always working

Never resting.

Those who reach

Will accomplish.

Those who hope

Will succeed.

Those who comfort

Will be comforted.

But those who inflict pain

Will be haunted —-

Ghosts of their past

Will never let go.

-by UMA

Note: Hand Like Tree: Cecyna, by Magdalena Abakanowicz is currently in the

Sarasota Season of Sculpture exhibition.
