Wisdom from the Forest


Yes there are mushrooms on the forest floor

enjoying the deadness of rotting logs.

But the message of the forest is in

the green, the living turning

upward, reaching

for the sky.


As we focus on the branches reaching

the leaves living, giving

us air, we will find ourselves

blending, absorbing

the peace

of the green.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”
