I could hardly believe it! The TWIG was doing the talking that had awakened me from my comfortable snooze!
"Did YOU say something?" I asked the twig--feeling a little foolish to be addressing a plant.
"Of course." Replied the twig.
"I didn't know plants could talk." I said, politely.
"We can when we have something important to say. Some of the wisest creatures around are old trees--you can learn a LOT about LIFE from them--if you listen!
And I am a twig from one of the very oldest trees--the Tree of Knowledge. It is high time, Crab, for you to wake up and remember who you ARE and WHAT you are doing!"
