Tree Lessons

Adaptation changes colors –

vividly reflecting the times

it celebrates seasons

Shedding sustains being –

detaching a little at a time

makes for a long life

Dormancy practices stillness –

listening to a cold wind

keeps possibilities open

“Out” is naked and vulnerable –

exposure does not cancel

it respects truth and goodness

Blossoms renew relationship –

it takes a village

to make an orchard

Fruition harmonizes –

harvesting disrupts

cultivating restores

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
