The Most Marvelous Things on Earth

JuanCarlos (@crabman2) 8 years, 9 months ago

The most marvelous things on Earth,
progress with such slow magnitude.
A tree, 100 feet tall and unmovable,
grew unseen everyday.
A thousand years from now, even the tallest sky scrapers will be dust.
And yet that same tree will still be there,
simply stronger, older, wiser.
With hundreds of seedlings following its same destiny.
We are that tree, We are life, We are one.

– Any thoughts? –

Regarding the sky scrapers: are you saying that our creations are ultimately going to die but we are not? Or that humans can never come close to matching nature’s immortality?

i guess you could interpret it that way. the message is more on how nature is slow but also everlasting compared to our man-made wonders. we too should be patient and focus on our inner wisdom bc it is in tune with the universe.
