Patience Of The Pine - Poem by Mike Adam

With wind
Rain
Sun and freeze

Standing
Stretching
Reaching and growing

The patient pine

Supports the birds
Supplies the cones
For foraging
Softens the ground
With needles
Processing light
Water and air
Preserving life
Year over year and
Weeping resin tears
