...finding nourishment

God help us To rise up from our struggle. Like a tree rises up from the soil Our roots reaching down to our trouble, Our rich, dark dirt of existence. Finding nourishment deeply And holding us firmly. Always connected. Growing upwards and into the sun.

M. Leunig, The Prayer Tree (Sydney: Dove/Harper Collins, 1998)
