Be Like the Tree

Learn from the Tree

 

Be like the Tree!

The tree is the ultimate sage

Her existence is an affirmation to her qualities

Do we not ponder over such a creation?

Oh so much to learn from her

 

Her roots determine her strength

They are hidden from man’s sight

Is the tree not amongst the humblest of created things?

She stands on guard day and night

Shades all that pass or rest beneath her

 

Her love is all-encompassing

All are welcome

Arms outstretched

A home for tiny creatures, a haven for mighty beasts

She whispers, “Welcome, welcome!”

She begs not

Sips in humility,

the drinks from heaven or the gardener’s can

 

Her gratitude is the fruit and flowers she bears

By means of her, mankind survives

She may be found anywhere

From the most remote Island to the highest hilltop

Even the barren desert wanes her presence

 

She stands in obedience and will remain as long as she is in use

Neglect her not, for she is a source of wisdom

Her love is selfless

Ponder over her qualities and become a beautiful tree

Become, become.
