Teach me, Nature,
How to be humble
Yet happy and carefree.
Teach me the secrets of
Being charitable like that
Tree that braves the storm
To shelter the birds and
Squirrels, the largeness
of the mountain that remains
Constant and grave.
Teach me the oneness
Of the trees and the vines
Climbing them without
Dishonor, I hear the birds
Chirping in unison with the
Breeze, creating a sense of
Déjà vu and beauty.
