    1. Thank you Milan. So glad to hear my concern and love for our natural resources came through in the poem. I am thankful for any chance I can use my poetry to raise awareness of a cause or concern, and in this case I was able to do so in regard to trees. I appreciate your visit and comment. Blessings to you!
