The Wisdom of the Tree (Psalm 1)

Come and see
the wisdom of the tree.

How its roots
know the steady strength of faithfulness.

How its branches
reach beyond itself in praise.

How its leaves
give voice to the wind.

How its canopy
provides shelter and shade to strangers.

How its colors
shift with the seasons.

Yes, the tree knows
the rhythm of death and resurrection

—the Way of Life.
