A moment of thoughts
Years ago I was going to go to school by train, but the train had a little longer to leave. I was sitting in the compartment unconsciously watching outside. Among the things that caught my eye were the rails, the moldy iron pillars, the blackened bricks on the wall of the station building… A tree caught my attention among the moldy iron piles and blackened bricks. It was the first time I realized the dazzling beauty of a tree with its sparkling leaves. A tree created by my Lord was incomparably beautiful compared to the things people produced ... Recently, the trees on the roadside caught my attention from a very different angle.
I was reading a book on Friday morning on my bus ride to work. It was the last day of the work week and I was a little tired of reading books in a noisy environment. I was going to get off the bus after one stop anyway. I closed the book and looked around. We came out of a dark tunnel, among the first things that caught my eye: the road, the bridge ahead, and the huge roadside construction machinery. Further ahead were apartments and rows of trees were planted between the road and the apartments. I started going back and forth between the trees and the roads, bridges and machines that people make. This time I noticed that the trees are beautiful as well as doing more than one useful work. Yes, people make, for example, the bridge is a work that only crosses the street. More or less the same can be said of construction machinery; it is either a scraper, an attractive or a carrier ...
What about trees? I've noticed that trees can do many things at once, some of them:
1) Plants purify the air from carbon dioxide gas. They absorb the carbon dioxide in the air and turn this gas into hydrocarbons that are necessary for their growth or survival. In addition to the food (hydrocarbons) they need, oxygen gas is also produced. In short, plants breathe oxygen gas instead of the carbon dioxide gas they take from the air. However, when there is no light, plants take oxygen and breathe carbon dioxide like humans. However, since the majority of plants are alive only in the summer and the day is longer in the summer than the night, the plants never pollute the air by their breathing. Most of the plants are already in hibernation when the night is long and the day is short.
2) Trees prevent landslides because the roots that they spread to the bottom of the ground keep the soil collective.
3) They host birds, insects or ants. Many birds build nests between branches and spend summer in the tree mansion. Insects and ants take refuge in the hollows of the trees.
4) Trees are like a food cabinet of birds and other creatures they host. Branches, leaves, flowers and fruits are the sustenance of many living things.
5) They invite the rain, which is described as mercy in Anatolia.
6) With the leaves they shed before the trees go into hibernation,
