100s Of Years

Trees can live for hundreds of years,
They well know to live together!
They tuft to earth, as child's to mom,
Light, water, and air they do share!
When storm does come they low their heads,
To show him respect out of fear!
The branches welcome, greet and laugh.
Leaves dance with the beat of the air.
The roots sometimes, take hold of each,
Thus, they make bridge, over the ditch.
What men ignore, they may do care
And mend that always, just to teach.
They whisper, and send their message,
Thru breeze, and soil, thru ether-
If nature lives, then all can live...
We should do that which can help her.
Hundreds, hundreds years they can live,
In warm friendship, fraternity.
But, we, intelligent creatures,
Can't keep this nature's sanctity!

    Excellent poem about trees. Enjoyed the narrative. Their longevity is baffling. They are doing something humanity hasn't quite managed to master yet.

    Hundreds, hundreds years they can live,
    In warm friendship, fraternity.

    A wonderful example beautifully written. We humans have soooo much to learn. Thank you.

    Nature cares.Humans do not.It explains that living organisms who think themselves intelligent are actually not worth it at a metaphysical level.
