Our region is blessed with abundant hardwood trees of all types. The end of fall in western NY is nearing and lots of the leaves have already turned in color. As they fall and settle down to become the feed for next year's growth, I am drawn to one of my favorite poems.
Advice From a Tree
Stand tall and proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Embrace with joy of the changing seasons
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Let your limbs sway
and dance in the breezes
Remember your roots and
Enjoy the view!
