The Bud of Awareness

A leafless tree

Sways in the wind

Blowing this way

And that

Where ever it wills

Not caring how it affects those around it

Just spreading it’s roots

Soaking up all the good water

With roots spreading wherever they will

Without a care

It grows


As it reaches out though

It goes far

Into sandy ground

A dry place

Testing the lands

It begins to understand

Those things around it

Those other trees

Are just like it

Trying for

And taking the best

The best of what they have


Then the tree realizes

It had the best

And reached for more

Without a leaf

It begins to center to level out

Gaining its first bud

The bud of awareness

The ability to flower and spread

Till it is a blossoming tree

Swaying with the wind
