A haibun written by Lee Sonogan
A tree is a self: it is ‘unseen shaping’ more than it is leaves or bark, roots or cellulose or fruit … What this means is that we must address trees as we must address all things, confronting them in the awareness that we are in the presence of numinous mystery. – Brian Swimme

This is not offensive If you remember the old animated show CatDog, that did not rain such divisor division. Take refuge from your attackers if not to suggest a mistaken emphasis.
