When a tree falls- paradox

When a tree falls in the
forest and no one is around,
does it make any sound?
Maybe they are so
close to each other,
it merely leans on its neighbor.

Dan,

Thanx. As for the template, I copied it from yours!

Bilbs,

When I was recently trekking through some forests in Coorg, looking at the dense tree growth, the thought occured to me.

comforting to think that nature could lean its haed or arm against its neighboring tree

its certain it could not lean on ours

humnaity would have surely stepped aside to let it fall

camera shy,

only you could have come up with this gem :

"humanity would have surely
stepped aside to let it fall "

Thanx for the brilliant insight.

An answer full of wit, of wisdom, and of warm respect for nature. ^_^ Indeed, these are memorable, quotable lines.

Thank you for sharing this piece. ^_^

Thanx a lot,

Soulless, for dropping by and for the nice things that you had to say. I browsed through your blog, but I did not find your archives. Why?

Floots, to earn your appreciation, it is the ultimate. Even you havn't given any access to your archives. Why?

M, for dropping by. I will visit your site too.

Lovely poem but the rate we're chopping down the forests, how much longer will there be enough trees left for them to fall on their neighbours when they fall?
