The Birch and the Pine

The Birch and the Pine

You are so different.

You, light Birch. You, dark Pine

How differently you dress to nature’s demands.

You, evergreen Pine.  You, sommar green, fall yellow Birch.

How differently you thank necessity.

You form yourself to a symphony, Birch. You, Pine, to a drama.

How differently you praise the sun.

You, Pine, send your pointed needles right out in exhilaration.

You, Birch, bend your branches  and bow all your soft leaves in reverence.

You are completely different, completely independent

and totally equal.

You share the same warmth and cold, the same water and wind.

You embrace each other’s roots in the same earth.

You, tough Pine. You, solid Birch.

Two lungs that purify the air.

Two dancers to the rhythm of the wind.

Two hands holding the earth in place.

Two pillars holding up heaven.

You, beautiful Birch. You, magnificent Pine.

You’re so much alike.
