We live in a busy world full of living things,
Trees, beings, moss and even the stones to which it clings.

It is all alive and never alone,
And how its all connected is now starting to be known.

The trees in the forests, the organisms we’re yet to discover,
They are all connected to us and to one another.

This journey is clearer when we see our lives together,
And understand to ourselves from all things there runs a tether.

Every organism, either big or small,
Needs to be respected if man is not to fall.

My hope is, we’ll realise when we look in our hearts,
This whole thing called life is greater than the sum of its parts.

Richard x
