The Necessity of Wind by What Ed Said (his words, not mine)

*The Biosphere 2 project was created as a research tool for scientists to study the Earth’s living systems. From 1991 to 1993, 8 volunteers sealed themselves from the outside world in this Biosphere bubble. It is remembered as a failure. In the Biosphere 2, they had trees growing faster than they would in the wild. However, they found that these trees wouldn’t completely mature. Before they could, they used to collapse. Later it was found that this was caused by the lack of wind in the biosphere. The presence of wind makes a tree stronger, it is thus able to mature and not fall down due to its own weight.

Biosphere 2
An enclosed region
Tried to recreate
The Garden of Eden

Trees grew quick
But never matured
A failed experiment
That never endured

Weak trees enclosed
Leaves had thinned
Trees with no strength
Because they had no wind

Protected in a bubble
Brought an end not good
Beautiful but not strong
Developed no stress wood

We deal with contrary winds
Adversity that seems wrong
But don’t forget its purpose
Its purpose to make you strong

At Biosphere 2
In all their pursuits
They had beautiful trees
Yet with shallow roots

We go through valleys
We go through trials
Some can be long
And go on for miles

But roots are developed
When the wind blows
Through those blistering gusts
The weak tree grows

Making you stronger
Is God’s master plan
And in that wind
Is where strength began

*what Ed said is a page I follow on Facebook, he makes his point by using poetry…

Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!!
