How come a leaf, part of the tree,
doesn't wiggle and scream, look at me, look at me.

The tree is so beautiful , and each tree has a shape,
every leaf is blended, a great picture it makes.

Now yes, each leaf is not standing apart, trying steal the show..
They smile together as one big group..And this is what they know.

The beauty comes from each part of the tree, weather branches, or leaves, or roots.
No one singly blows its trumpet, to make itself noisy with toots.

The tree could not be, magnificently,standing tall for all to see..
if it had no harmony.

Put that tree, in the middle of the forest, with a zillion other trees
not one tree, stands out you see, because again they show harmony.

The whole picture is where the beauty is, of every tree standing tall.
There could be no grand display if it were not for them ALL.

People of earth, look at the earth, and see..We are one, we are blended, we
are the All you see. Imagine the view that we could make, if we all were in harmony.
