THE LESSON

magnolia and cinco de mayo 002

This is the lesson of the mountains.

You see spring come overnight and everything

begins to flower. Plants grow quickly,

since there isn’t much time.

Spread roots, absorb the sunlight,

bear fruit. Quickly, because the cold

is sure to come: clouds, snow, barren trees.

Be quick, don’t waste time, the mountains tell us.
