Wendell's Trees

Wendell Berry helped open my eyes
when I could not see
the trees for the forest

where the collective gratitude of the woods
cannot be stacked
up against the individual

gift of praise from every sentinel
which is more powerful
and ultimately more palpable

because each is together, yet separate
as I am with you
and we are with God.
