BEING A TREE
Being a part of nature, part of the Wilderness,
Part but essential as trees are to me.
Trees have played a consistent part in my life.
Always, always, there have been trees.
Trees to admire, to climb..
And later to chop down
To provide warmth and comfort.
Being among the trees a quiet, exquisite comfort.
A place of serenity where I belonged.
I didn’t see that I could be a destroyer of the beauty, of the peace, of the trees.
