In any community,
I love that a tree
in its magnanimity,
lives not just
for flora and fauna:
a tree is diversity;
I love that about a tree,
And hope that for each community.
And a note…
Having lichens growing on your rocks, trees and ground around your property is a good thing. That means the air you breathe in is healthy and clean.
America’s answer to the intolerant man is diversity – the very diversity which our heritage of religious freedom has inspired.
