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
These roots are hidden from man’s sight
Is the tree not amongst the humblest of created things?
She stands on guard, be it day or night
She shades all that pass and rest beneath her
there is no criteria for this
Her love is all-encompassing
Anyone is welcome to rest at her feet
A home for little creatures, a haven for mighty beasts
She whispers “welcome, welcome!”
She begs not yet sips in humility whatever befalls her;
be it from the heavens or the gardener’s watering can.
Her gratitude is the fruit and flowers she bears
By means of her, mankind survives
She may be found almost anywhere
From the most remote Island, the highest hilltop
Even the barren desert wanes for her presence
She stands in obedience and will remain as long as she is in good use
Neglect her not, for she is a source of wisdom.
Her love is selfless
Ponder over her qualities and become a beautiful tree
