I really like trees.
There is much in this world to be inspired by and trees always do it for me.
The fact that we seem determined to consign them to memory makes me sad.
But I understand why we do it.
Here’s a brief piece (101 words) on that:
I saw the trees, I watch them fall.
I clear the ground to plant the grain.
I feed the habit of millions and starve the world.
We want what we don’t need and need what we destroy.
I am a facilitator just trying to earn a living.
Just trying to feed my family.
You pay me to destroy both our worlds so you can live in yours and I in mine.
There is nothing between us.
We cannot go back so we carry on.
We stand together past the point of no return.
You saw the trees, you watch them fall.
