Fingers reaching for the sky
a life cycle to behold
not different from our own
seed brings life, and life brings age
rings and wrinkles a testament.
A city of trees
nature’s example to us all
peoples as varied as the trees in the forest
as money and position are to people
are water, ground and sun to trees
not equally dispersed
not all will survive…
Water diverted from one place to another
some will thirst while others dry and wither
true of both people and plant.
Trees planted where none grew before
flourish off what was taken from others…
artificially supported, they live on borrowed time.
Man’s choices and actions…
man or tree, results are the same…
nature’s course altered…
an artificial world carries on.
