When we look around at nature, everything is in harmony, as long as human do not disturb. Everywhere we look, there is evidence of compassion and self-sacrifice. There are many lessons for humans in the observation of nature.

Phoenix of the heart

One day, Mother Tree was rather forlorn,
It was the height of spring, with blossoms born,
Yet the rings were weighed down,
Gravity engraving a grave frown,
She was the most adored of the forest,
Among all good hearts, was the best,
All creatures gathered to her, with offer of aid.
A distant and melting look, on her face was portrayed,
As she expressed her compassion and clairvouyance,
Said she, I see the plight of many, at a distance,
I shall give of myself, to them that need,
Rooted I am, would you take away my flesh and seed?

Bathed in pollen, flew away the bee,
Merry wind joined, scattered where earth was free,
Butterfly flitted away, with nectar laden,
Leaving sweet trails for man and maiden,
Spotted deer did their bit and followed suit,
Delivering the seeds of fallen fruit,
Moose and sparrow carried branches and twigs,
For those raising dams and digs.

With her every sacrifice, she lit a smile on myriad faces,
As she died once, and rose in a thousand places.
