Quiet Pear Tree

cherries pears walnuts


We leave for work early most mornings, feeling rushed and late.  Work is hard, especially on Mondays with backups from the weekend business.  We get home later to find household and lawn chores, homework to help with, the news, dinner, laundry and a million other tasks, only to start the whole process over again the next morning.

But outside there is a pear tree, quiet, green and beautiful, who has been growing beautiful green fruit all summer that we have not noticed.  The fruit is bursting with juice and limbs droop heavy, leaving luscious droppings on shaded ground. Still unnoticed, the gift slowly breaks down and disappears into the cool fall soil.

This same sad story can be told of walnut, apple and cherry trees everywhere! Stop and notice the riches all around you.  Take time to harvest and preserve the wholesome gift of nature and thank that beautifully quiet pear tree.
