68.Lesson from leaves

Billions of plants and trees

Carry trillions of leaves on them

Very close, yet spread out

To let the sun and rain through.

Human beings, much fewer in number

Try to block everything

Often at their own cost,

Often receiving blows and wounds.

 

Why can’t they learn from leaves?

Why can’t they come close,

Yet spread out and give space?
