peppercorn tree

Strong and hardy peppercorn tree,

your ferny leaves give shelter

on a dry, outback, sun-parched day.

Wind cannot harm you

or spreading fire.

When you are hurt

you grow again

from strength you store

beneath the damaged surface.

When there is loss I think of you,

peppercorn tree.
