Nature’s Moral Stories

Spring, summer,

Autumn nick fall, and winter:

Life is a circle shaped by time.

Should failure in timing

Be marked as a reckless crime?

Trees are olympians:

Endurance, check.

Resilience, check.

Grounded; well rooted,


Plants and trees:

The way to life is purpose;

The way to humanity is generosity.

Free air, free shade, free prayer–

Free is timeless.

Leaves of green:

Simplicity is an effortless beauty.

Leaves of red, gold, and tangerine:

Grace and art of death–

They’re into it.

Winds are invincible dancers.
