Yes We Can Plant Trees #AToZChallenge

The Weeping Cedar Woman of Tofino in Vancouver Island,
Sheds tears as forests are under threat from (in)human hand.
What right do we have to harm what we didn’t grow?
Her out-stretched hand conveys what we already know-

"Do not cut the trees!" is her urgent message for us all.
It takes years for a tree & for a forest to grow tall...
Yet insensitive humans are responsible for destruction...
Pointing to the ground, her other hand directs attention-

"Take care of Mother Earth & afforestation" is her sincere plea.
To stop climate change & improve biosphere, trees are a necessity. 
A weeping woman is reminding us to take care before it’s too late.
Yes we can act together & change ours’ & our planet’s fate.

Yes we can plant more trees & provide eco-friendly solution.
Yes we can make a positive yeoman's environmental contribution.
Yes we can take ownership as our earth needs our action.
Yes we can pledge- “Yes I’ll plant trees & support plantation.

Have you ever planted a tree? Please share your comments.

I'm participating in my maiden #AToZChallenge. Y For - YES, Yeoman
My Theme is- Poems About Life.


  1. Every breath we take is dependent upon trees so why is it so important to destroy them so that some short lived fossil fuel can be gathered to destroy the atmosphere? How foolish humans are.

  2. May we all be more careful when facing a tree, and beware and listen to the prayers of soil

  3. Planting trees like good words transcends time

  4. Love the fiery determination that is your poem ❤️

  5. I hope people everywhere plant trees. As fast as possible. Thanks, Anita!

  6. May the message of the weeping cedar woman of Tofino spread far and wide!

  7. Yes, trees, trees, trees.

  8. Well said! And how great that you were inspired by Sherry's Weeping Woman photo.

  9. Wonderful words. We must focus on what we can do - instead of constantly lamenting what is being done to us ... and to our beautiful planet. Your perspective, in this post, is one that we would all do well to emulate. "Yes we can plant trees".

  10. Lovely interpretation, Anita. Sometimes, we destroy our long-term prospects by fulfilling the short-term. Cutting of trees is one such activity. Awareness is much needed in this regard.

  11. We should definitely be planting more trees

    much love...

  12. Wishing you a lovely month of May and inviting you to link to Monday WRites

    much love...

  13. Well said , Anita. Hope this message reaches the hearts of our politicians and builders...


Your words mean a lot to me.
