Defenseless,
She huddles
Beneath
An oak tree

Intimidated,
By its towering presence
Dwarfed,
By its power

She cannot see

Past its tangled branches,
To the possibilities
That lay
A few steps beyond her reach

Nor can she hear

The directions to get there
Through the whistling
Of the merciless
Wind

But she can touch
A hand guiding her
Over the scraggly roots

And she can feel
a hand catching her
When she stumbles

And in this way
She can step past
The towering oak,
Into possibilities
She never thought possible
