Poet of the Week: David Soh

Chosen as Poet of the Week, from October 2-8th. "AS I SEE THE TREES" I looked at the trees from my place
I admire the beauty of the trees able
to grow together and depending on
Mother Nature to provide its growth

I know we humans cannot live
as Mother Nature just like Adam
and Eve by doing nothing and depending on nature to provide

I just wonder why we cannot be
somewhat like trees
in our daily life, living together in
harmony as family and community

I know this is impossible even in
a small family or community as
there is always the presence of
jealousy and greed in all of us

I know if we just separate ourselves
go back to Mother Nature and
reflect deeply, not just for the sake
of doing it like attending a retreat

I really need to ask myself
who am I and does our God want
me to be a greedy or jealous person
or a person filled with bountiful Love
