Reconnect

Put an acorn in your pocket.
Adopt a tree.
As part of your daily docket,
Converse with your adoptee.
When winter ice breaks its branches,
Feel its pain.
Rejoice when springtime's embrace
Heals it again.
Note how drought and acid rain 
Impair its health
And growth of buds constrain.
Witness, in fall, its orange-gold wealth.
See how your tree provides a home
For squirrels, birds and other creatures.
Hear how the wind sounds the sacred Om
Blowing on your tall friend's features.
When you and your tree have bonded lives,
Will you weep when your friend dies?
