Bow Before Trees

Written by RitaC on October 29th, 2012

Trees are humble.
They do not complain
Nor try to control
Outside forces.

Trees bend, break,
Blossom, leaf and
Fold in naturally,

Trees live simply.
They drink water,
Take in nutrients from
The earth, the air, the sun.

Trees are not arrogant.
They do not gossip.
They are adorned with
The beauty of esteem.

Rooted, stretching,
Upward, outward,
Trees stand in accord
With themselves and nature.
