MIGHT HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE

 

“When the last tree is cut,
the last fish is caught,
and the last river is polluted;
when to breathe the air is sickening,
you will realize, too late,
that wealth is not in bank accounts
and that you can’t eat money.”

 

~ Alanis Obomsawin ~

1972

WOODENHEART

 

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is
in the eyes of others only green thing that stands in the way.
Some see Nature all ridicule an deformity,
and some scarce see Nature at all.
But to the eyes of the man of imagination,
Nature is Imagination itself.”

 

~ William Blake ~

RENEWAL

 

“Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted,
and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them,
and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.”

THE TREES DANCE

 

“To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
An eternity in an hour.”
