"Plants are the young of the world, vessels of health and vigor..."
~ RW Emerson ~
Our son, Nick, is moving to the West Coast.
He leaves at the end of this week,
And we have given him his family sendoff.
As life would have it,
Our last spontaneous collective effort on the farm
Was to transplant a Maple tree from a location
Where it didn't seem entirely happy
To a spot on the hill
Where it has a commanding view
And God willing,
It didn't occur to us until we had completed the job how
Fitting it was-
How perfectly allegorical-
And how beautifully complete.
The Cosmic Flow bears endless blessings.
