The tree above signifies the connection
Of how the microscopic characteristics
Relate to the macroscopic structures.
The tree speaks for itself…
Overall ensuring a form and identity
That speaks of structure and integrity
That can withstand stress & pressure
Erosion & the aging processes.
The tree perhaps is shriveled & stark
Within its roots the winter wilts its will
Yet the tree upholds itself in tenacity
Branching out to balance itself.
Standing strong and proud
In the autumn of life
In being all it needs to be.
The tree speaks for itself.
