Tree spirituality: fighting with sisters

Even in full sunlight, a tree’s leaves are still in shade,
each leaf casting shadow over its sister leaf’s light;
even when attached to the same branch, they get in each other’s way –
They could start fighting
or they could see that they both draw nutrients, both give nutrients
in a deep state of interbeing,
and that fighting with each other is fighting with oneself
