the layers within:
the color of the blue sky in the green leaves,
and there is the color of the sun in the tree.
The leaves, the flowers, the root systems of the trees. . .
See then how all are connected to compose this environment called Forest.
See the motions of time—
By looking at a stream,
see when last the floods came.
Study the fallen tree,
and know of weather,
of climate, of wildlife and flora,
the health of the soil and what has happened to the tree.
Following track marks in the dirt,
know the ways of Animal.
By observing animals,
see how they think, see what they see.
communicate with and within this environment. . .
And know Us.
