Thought for tonight

This is in a book I just finished reading. I found it quite poignant.

When I was a child, trees were trees, rivers were rivers and mountains were mountains.

When I grew up, trees were no longer trees, rivers were no longer rivers and mountains were no longer mountains.

Now, as an adult, trees are once again trees, rivers are rivers and mountains are mountains once again.

~ Zen poem, author unknown
