The trees of the Lord are well cared for—the cedars of Lebanon that he planted. There the birds make their nests, and the storks make their homes in the cypresses.—Psalm 104:16-17, NLT

We look at trees,

the sturdy trunk,

the strong limbs,

the spindly branches

reaching out, the leaves

weaving into a canopy 

that shelters all that lives 

under the cooling green, 

and we find a friend,

a comfort for us, 

a home for bird and squirrel,

a constant reminder

of both life’s constancy and

diversity, and I wonder

at the unseen roots

burrowing into ground,

seeking out the springs

that nourish cells — there

is hard and unseen work

that goes into all living

beings, you, me, and 

every wondrous 

and flourishing tree.
