messages in the trees

apparently indigenous bent young saplings down
to show where rivers,springs and pools
might guide one through with no paths
these trees remain today as signs and symbols

apparently energy use is now multiplicitous
(not reliant upon any one source)
post-Chenobyl/Three Mile Island/Fukoshima
Hiroshima and Nagasaki

apparently coal mines strip earth and our lungs
apparently fracking destroys water supplies
apparently batteries cannot store energy for long
electric cars are like bicycles on batteries

apparently forests denuding,global warming
apparently temperatures rising in concrete cities
apparently we did not listen-to tree ,nor indigenous
apparently we still have alternatives-

to listen,watch with respect ,reverence,wonder
how to best be with wind,water,sun,tides-gaia and mother nature
