Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

What I Learned from Trees

A forest of these trees is a spectacle too much for one man to see.
David Douglas

We are in Yosemite this weekend and there are many people here

But I cannot see the people for the trees

I cannot hear my thoughts above the conversation

Of the trees

Little ones racing each other to reach the sky first

Older ones indulgently letting the sun reach in
and keeping the biting wind away

We can learn a lot from trees
 and that's poetiquejustis

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
   and the one who is wise saves lives. 
Proverbs 11:30
