“We have been alone too long—“

From the book 10 to 17 February Afternoons

We have been alone too long---

Frustrations caused by our inability
     To communicate
          with each other
          And Nature
     Have pushed us
          Over the edge
          Of living
          And feeling life.

The importance of every
     Seed,
     Leaf,
     Branch,
     Limb,
     And Trunk,
     Of every tree,
     Seem often overlooked;
          For they are as
          Individually different
          As each and every
          One of us.
