Could this be me?

Why do I feel this way….

I am sad because i failed to see

that my Russia Olive (tree)

needed me..

You see I planted her

when she was very young,

and until recently I have checked her every day

she is not hard to miss,

she is right outside my bedroom window

and to the left of the deck when I go out.

Yet with the heat

and with all the … this and that…

that have been happening in my days

I saw she was getting top-heavy,

but I didn’t go further then register that thought

in my sun drenched, heat wilted brain

With an overnight rain, now she bows her head

in shame, for she is no longer standing proud and vain

d8e9fb81cca602bb0e29f1dde5d2650fYes she has even started to bear fruit

her very first year to produce fruit

now she needs repair

True in nature on her own, she would be fine

but i adopted and brought her here

and put her down in the ground of a city lot

I took responsibility, and then forgot

The PL Second Founder said:  When you have to pay for things, pay them joyfully and quickly without regret.  In the same manner when you something to be done, let’s do it without any reluctance or hesitation.  When you have to say something necessary, let’s express boldly and shamelessly without any compromise.  This is the mot natural  and right way to follow, PL Precept 19.  Begin once you Perceive.
