THE Power

Today is so fine, the elm trees in full bloom and I look and see and say:

“Could you make an elm tree?”

What is more powerful than man and all his works? The closest thing I know is the ecosystem.  I know I couldn’t be here without it and I can’t change the way it makes an elm tree, and nothing can stop the Springtime.

and this is what I saw, and I wondered again:

“How did the ecosystem get here?”

It’s worth studying,

because apparently we have the power to mess up this fine gift.
