Forestial Fairness

Worms eyeview of green trees

Wooden trunks tower

above the horizon

anchoring themselves

as life connectors

from Earth’s roots

to the heavens above.


Myriads of diverse

multicolored fauna

attached to timber

gleam across the sky

as immaculate beings.


They represent the

depth and memories

while giving us life

on our planet Earth.


Providing us oxygen

balancing our ecosystem

they are our saviors.

Understand our bloodline.

Protect our lifeline.

Revere our forestlands.
