Could there be one tree in the forest God deemed superior?
It’s shape, it’s form, it’s height, it’s resilience to weather life’s storms,
It’s growth rate and life span,
The ability to bear fruit or need of less care;
Just what would make one tree better than the others?
Thankfully God forgot to pick and choose,
before spreading abundant seeds.
For our world is blessed with the richness of creation,
Of great variety and variation.
What a sad, poor, dull, boring, lonely world it would surely be,
If God graced the earth with just one superior tree.
