As Trees

As Trees
the trees are Earth’s lungs
and stand like antennae
sensory projections
gifted personae
beauty, diversity
some scented, some strong
a community that is networked
thru roots widespread and long
we are as trees
rooted in the past
diverse individuals
with networks that are vast
as trees and as humans
we are also connected
multi-dimensional links
always intersected
as we breathe
as our hearts beat
as we are nourished and loved
as we bask in the sunlight
radiating from above
let us honour these lives
knowing we are part of each other
habitants on Earth
our communal Mother
