If you stand at the edge of the forest
and stare into it
every tree at the edge will blow a little extra
oxygen toward you
It has been proven
Leaves have admitted it
The pines I have known
have been especially candid
that all breath in this world
is roped together
that breathing is
the most ancient language
Ancient Language by Hannah Stephenson
In the middle of a row of emeralds
Light sparkles on brilliant color
Natures jewels glimmering in sunlight
Trees can’t help but be happy with who they are.
Extravagantly, audaciously beautiful
Totally at home where they’re planted
Reaching for the sky
Content to be rooted and grounded
Letting their leaves come and go
As they see fit
watching all the dancing
as seasons come and go.
Knowing there will always be abundance
Giving us life giving oxygen with,
not even a whisper,
of quid pro quo
Trees are magnificent.
I can’t help but admire
their character and integrity
Their deep wisdom and acceptance of life.
Their mystery and playfulness.
Their understanding and gracious giving hearts.
Even driving down the busiest of highways during rush hour
becomes a beautiful experience
when you spend the moments of the stop-n-go
looking out your car window
at the show being put on
right next to the roadway
