The Third Period (Known as Fall or Autumn)
by Dr. Fitzroy Gregory Joseph
Dr. Fitzroy Gregory Joseph wants us to see natures manifestation in its unarguable beauty, yet harsh nakedness, unapologetic, untouched by human arrogance and glibness of tongue. Trees are part of the universe to be taken seriously as living entities alongside us. Note their persistence and sustainability in spite of human callousness and frequent myopia. In the midst of all, the majesty of the stalwart trees and the incandescence from the ray of exotic leafy colors on the threshold of demise (winter) reflect a hope of spring rejuvenation, a resurrection. If only human beings can see the parallel in our lives and conclude with appreciative respect for trees on this planet.
