The branching branching

The branching branching of the tree
goes up and out and out
reaching reaching for air water and
light, ever more light
without striving without trying
just receiving
thus the tree organizes its living giving
I have heard that bee hives and ant colonies
organize their scouting for food
this self-same way
wasteful O how wastefully
disorganized organizing!
Life is as it lives
& we are part
essential and small
& we are part
