Mankind’s Best Friends
As darkness closes and predators prowl nearby,The Neanderthal seeks shelter underneath a tree,Ripping off one of its limbs and starting a hearty fire.Warmth, light and safety, provided by the ancient giants of the forest. In the dead of the winter, the pioneer wakes up the sleeping giants with his axe,Taking logs to build his cabin, which will protect his family through the freezing cold.The hearty fire now burns in his home all night long,Smoke rising up to meet the sky,...

Wind blows, rustling the leaves, Then peace all around the trees, The flow of the river and the playing of fish, Is so beautiful you can’t even guess. Then...

Suddenly I hear a whisper, “Look up here Avni!You are not alone, it’s your friend the magnolia tree!” My frown breaks into a smile, my heart fills with love,My beautiful magnolia tree with big green leaves, flowers white as doves.
