BLESS THE TREES
We take them for granted. In the fall they lose their
leaves little by little until the are stripped naked. They
spend the winter being snowed on, blown around by a
cruel wind making we humans shiver in the cold.
Along comes spring and you look out wondering what
happens in their roots where life for them begins
all over again .
I’m talking of the deciduous variety. The maples, the oaks.
Mid- April comes along and you see little hints of greenery
and we sigh to ourselves wondering how that miracle
happens all on its own.
Author’s comment: Thank goodness it does. Over the next
weeks these beautiful trees come back to life right before
our eyes. Without us having a damn thing to do about it.
We count our blessings that we’re alive to see it happen.
