Truths from the Tree
Stand tall and proud,
and reach for the sunlight.
Grow deep roots where you are planted,
and you will be braced and secure from threatening winds.
When those winds do blow,
bend and be flexible, and you will survive.
Stretch out your arms far and wide,
and welcome those that rest in your shade.
Delight in sharing with nature’s creatures
with nests and burrows and nourishment.
When your life is over,
give back to what gave life to you.
This is in follow-up to yesterday’s post – Reflections from the River – and a continuation in Lessons from Nature.
