UPDATE True Environmental Tales - 101

I Fifty years ago - I was about ten - My grandfather wept for a tree: Blue Spruce, one in the township ... I empathized, but didn't understand II This morning, in 40-hour rain, I wept for my three-year Neem ... Boys got over my fence at night, To dispossess the whole environment - So they have slings to hunt birds III I talked calmly about time and tree: They empathize - but don't understand Lesson: I remind myself, Jesus allowed the "crime" so I a cept. Therapists talk about 5-minute funerals, grieving, over some issues. I tried; won in 25 hours, LOL! My wife & I already planted new saplings. Hallelujah. Shalom shalOm

Coach Bill, blessings & shalom, shalom. We are observant in watching our thoughts ... But weak in victory for Jesus's kingdom. Holy spirit is ready to help, if we remember to gumbky ask, invite, welcome Him. Amen

Anil Deo- You are an amazing soul, with a wonderful heart that seems to connect so lovingly with all God's creation! You are a great writer, and so prolific! I am going to start reading your poems regularly, as I haven't visited this poetry website for awhile. I'm so sad to hear of what was done to your lovely Neem tree, and hope that the trees which you and your wife have planted will flourish, -- May you and your wife Be blessed~ Shalom
