I was asking myself something about a concern I had,
when a little voice came through and said
‘you don’t have to figure it out’.
Not only that, the little voice said:
‘turn and look out your window;
now tell the alders, tell the cedars, tell the pines
and lastly, tell the firs your concerns.
Give it to them – you have nothing to figure out.’

And you know what? I did.

I gave them all my questions and concerns and
they whispered back: ‘go about your day, we’ll bring
your answers up from the belly of the earth and
drop them at your feet while you sleep.’

Now I know why Mary Oliver says that everything adores being alive.

and brings them together.

~Kahlil Gibran
