Be Like a Tree

Be Like a Tree

A tree is a community
From its roots to its canopy
It nourishes and feeds
Consumes and protects
Everything that dare be on it or in it
Or dare to live under or near it
Whether mammal or insect
Reptile, amphibian, or human
Come to inspect it.

You are like a tree
As you build community
Within and about you
To feed and consume you
To nourish and keep everyone
Who dare get to know who you are.

Live like a tree
From root to canopy
Share from your heart
Express your creativity
Reach out to others
Respond to their needs
From root to canopy
Be like a tree.
