Take a walk with me, my friend,
And I’ll show you a wonder to behold.
The shade is cool.
The breeze is soft.
Grass tickles your toes
As we walk.
Leaves wink as you pass under the branches
Of the gentle trees.
They whisper of your presence, and smile.
Birds chirp, and move above.
Ants climb up the bark to find food.
Beetles click, and search for homes in the wood.
Trees share their bounty with all who are in need –
Can you feel their love and wisdom?
Share this with all that have forgotten.
