A small child wandered through the forest
Looking for hope, hungry for a bit of faith
That something existed bigger than her.
She needed to find a reason for being.
She leaned against a giant tree
And put her arms around its trunk.
She closed her eyes and tried to rest.
After an hour had passed, she noticed
The bark of the tree was rough.
Insects scurried back and forth
In between the ridges in the bark.
The tree provided shelter and food
For the insects passing by.
She breathed in the cool air
And embraced the solitude that
Surrounded her in the forest glade.
A bird flew above her head
And perched on the tree’s branches.
Nearby, came the chirps from a nest
Hidden in a canopy of leaves and twigs.
Again, this tree was providing shelter
For many of the creatures in the forest.
The child could feel the energy coming
From the heart and soul of the tree.
She could feel its unique vibrations
Enter her body and expand her soul,
Until she too felt as one with the tree.
“I feel renewed,” she cried.
“This energy is bigger than me.
I too, am made by God’s hand
To provide support for those
In need of renewal and hope.”
“All of us are part of the whole,”
