Learning from nature Haiku poems: “Aspen grove” (arboleada de álamos o abedules)

Image result for images aspen groves


“One aspen tree is actually only a small part of a larger organism. A stand or group of aspen trees is considered a singular organism with the main life force underground in the extensive root system. Before a single aspen trunk appears above the surface, the root system may lie dormant for many years until the conditions are just right”

“Aspen grove”

Single (trees) above  ground,

Share a root system below:

Their roots are Oneness!


Teach us:


-Individuals are:

All part of the Great Oneness,



-One Community:

Life Source flows through all alike

(In the) Human family.


-If I hurt you now…

I hurt myself, the same as

YOU:  brother & sister!



(When forest fires burn down the aspen grove, their roots will rise again!)

“Un árbol aspen es en realidad solo una pequeña parte de un organismo más grande. Un soporte o grupo de árboles aspen se considera un organismo singular con la fuerza vital principal subterránea en el extenso sistema de raíces. Antes de que aparezca un solo tronco aspen sobre la superficie, el el sistema radicular puede permanecer inactivo durante muchos años hasta que las condiciones sean las adecuadas “

“Arboleada de álamos o abedules”


(Árboles) individuales por encima del suelo,

Comparten un sistema singular de raíz:

¡Sus raíces son parte de la Unidad!




-Los individuos son:

Todos parte de la Gran Unidad,



-Una comunidad:

(La) Fuente de vida fluye a través de todos por igual

(en la) familia humana.


-Si te hago daño ahora…

Me lastimo a mi también como

A ti:  hermano y hermana!


(Cuando los incendios forestales queman a los árboles de álamo, ¡sus raíces vuleven a crecer!)
