Everything we have forgotten

Written after watching The Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees.

Everything we have forgotten

about the earth

and the trees

is coming home to me.

It was born in me

and lost

in classrooms



I thought about our land

and what it means to me.

And what land once meant

to a people.

And I cried for those

forced from their land

who watched it destroyed

The trauma to the people

the land and the creatures.

I feel dedicated

to do what I can

to plant trees

and restore this small plot of land

And to write

in hopes of inspiring others

to live this way, who can

And maybe one day

We can all live this way
