Be a Tree

Image

Trees are unique in our planet.

In a symbiotic relationship with the earth.

They breathe in the poison

and release the oxygen

to allow us to live.

The tree drops her seed

the earth is her womb

nutrified by the dying of her leaves

to give birth to her young.

And when she dies,

falling like dancer with grace

to the soil

she dissolves, piece by piece, 

gradually becoming

the earth from whence

she came.

We should all wish to Be a Tree.
