Hello, said the tree.
Thank you for planting me.
I think I’m going to like it here.
I love trees, said the little boy.
And I love you.
You are a special tree.
All trees are special, said the sapling.
I will always be here
Watching over you and your children’s children.
How long can you stay here? How old will you get?
Will you live for ever and ever?...

A seed falls.
It lands, barely audible
it falls from a tree, a 50 year old tree
50 times around the sun.
Rain and Wind.
Its roots working their way through the soil
for 50 years.
To create a seed to fall one day
to be heard.
And I was there.

The gust of wind is ever so slight
But it lifts the seed on wings of air
And it is borne upon the breeze in flight.
Amid the gusts and flurries
The rain pours down and the seed is carried
to soft fingers of the earth, unhurried.
Nestling snugly in the earth
the seed slips deeper down,
washed by the rain into the earth.
Later a green shoot...
