Morning Reflection/Another Lesson from Nature

     Still feeling the effects of our harsh winter as the tree man is cutting down three trees which didn't survive the cold. They weren't big trees but they filled their space with a delicate, youthful beauty and the yard seems empty and bereft without them. The tree man pointed out another tree with a huge split down the center. Winter wind damaged this tree, he said, but it should survive. He did suggest we cover its roots with mulch to keep them better protected. Hopefully, this tree will, as the tree man suggested, heal itself.
     I'm learning, of course, that there are no guarantees. Nature can be as devastating as it is breathtakingly beautiful. 

          The moods and mysteries of nature tender a vivid reflection of our own.
