The Wisdom of Trees

They hear the song blowing in the wind

they do not, write, make music

paint or perform

the trees are silent(maybe they speak to each other)

the squirrels, birds, insects, bacteria and other small animals

make them their home,

their is a belief that the trees are even more sensitive than we


we will never know

for we can not speak their leafy language

their branches sway with the wind

they know a pleasant day, and the storms equally

yet they stay put

they are just as alive as the mammals and the insects

they sit there waiting and crying and giving,

giving us oxygen, while we knock them down for paper

these wise old trees.

standing upright and giving life and light,

they got so unnoticed by many of us

yet, you can feel them when you grow more
