Daily Prompt: Rooted together

I try to keep them all together

Tied firmly to my branches

Just as I hold tight to my roots.

They sway to the wind’s caresses

And grow heavy with temptation.

Sometimes they bloom with the surety

That their beauty will seduce.

Often, they think that they know better than me.

Can a part ever be better than the whole?

Will the flowers maintain their beauty

If they adorned the ground instead?

How far would the leaf’s adventure take it

Before it withered and slept forever?

I hold them in my embrace only till I know

That it is time to finally let them go.

No rebellion is needed my children,

For I am a tree. I know what it is to yearn to be free.

Prompt:  Tree
