Wisdom

Walking in the forest,
I gaze in wonder
at the giant redwoods,
stately,
mighty,
beautiful.
How did you grow so
from seedling
to magnificence?

They spoke to me,
“We learned from life.
The winds
taught us to bend,
the storms
to deepen our roots,
the drought
to endure.

We were given
sunlight for nurture,
Holy water for drink,
one another for sharing,
and time to live
the fullness.

Through the ages
of our life
we learned
joy in being,
thanksgiving for
receiving,
reverence from
seeing,
and love by
knowing."
