What then is a tree?

The sun is our soul, the moon our mind, so what then is a tree? Spreading its roots deep into the earth, spreading its branches up towards the sun, supporting the world and giving life. To me a tree is a friend with no conditions, always there in the same place, sometimes with different clothes on or even naked, sometimes bearing fruit or flowers, always giving, always there.

"What did the tree learn from the earth? To be able to talk with the sky." Pablo Neruda
