Spiral rainbow

the tall will fall

there were these strong gales in spring 2014 in Ireland
four or five of them in short succession
many roofs have been damaged
many trees broke off or were unrooted
the power of nature, powerful in deed
the human achievements are temporary
not lasting forever at all
everything that grows too big or too tall will fall
maybe there’s an advantage in being modest and small
maybe it’s a wake up call for all
without strong roots there will be no fruits
flexibility and modesty are true virtues
indeed very important – not only for a tree.
