LESSON OF THE TREES

 

Listen to what they say when the wind moves,

the trees, taller than houses,

and the swamp grasses, taller than men:

.

Life thrives for this instant;

people dizzy themselves with words,

as the insects buzz;

.

sticky life flows through your veins,

as it does through ours;

.

dry death and decay

lie beneath new green stems;

.

we will breathe in and out,

we will move with the wind

.

as long as the sun rises and sets.
