I picked you up on April 7th (2020)
Believing, you would last a week
As you were already disconnected
They cut you off your tree
I gave you water
Yet I could not substitute the stem
Nor the roots
Which connected and nourished you
I was surprised you were still alive
After one week
You grew on me
Yet, there is only so much stock for growth left in you
A small stock of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium
Yet you are
To a linear decay
I realized you were never to meet the seasons again
Go a full circle
You are designed to be regenerative
Now you are destined to never reblossom
Looking at you makes me wonder
How much inflow we may have already cut off
Fooling ourselves by looking at the outflow
Such as your generous, green leaves.
”After one year the branch became a gentle reminder that we do not have to save the planet as it will save itself - ever generous and regenerative.
The branch was put back into the ground. Nitrogen, phospherus and potassium now have a chance to help prosper, regenerate and eventually re-cycle.
Can you think of other examples where we see outflow, because of the stock created, yet where there is no more inflow? Where we are already disconnected. Or where we live the illusion of if we stopped the inflow now, such as CO2 emissions, we will be fine, over time? Will we? Drop us a line:
