five poems - for Adaptive Capacity

flames pop open cones

bark peels, sap boils, needles flare;

charred soil awakens.

And the boy loved the tree.......very much.
And the tree was happy.


                    - Shel Silverstein,    The Giving Tree

Go to the pine if you want to learn about the pine,
   or the bamboo if you want to learn about the bamboo.


       -  Matsuo Basho   (1644 - 1694)

Between
freedom
and effort

 

parasite
and host
twist
‘round;

one
becomes
an-other.
