Since the incident,

I spend more time

listening to the trees.

The towering giants

whisper stories of survival.

“Stand strong,” they sing.

“Dig your roots deep.

Don’t let go.”

Ancient arms reach out

in a wide embrace.

I take comfort in

their sturdy steadfastness.

 

What lessons could we learn

if we listened to the trees?
