Through rustling leaves and waving fields,
Dainty and graceful
against the sky they are etched…
“Wisdom comes when Balance
between head and heart is stretched.
With eyes steady on the horizon,
our stride is great!
Whether we are contemplative or merely puzzled,
light and dark dapple us in their grand debate.
We all move through awkwardness to grace…
Live as only you can, and Truth is embraced…
Silence is golden, and with feet firmly planted
we may soar to heights where, from every direction,
even tomorrow may be seen…
Live true that powerful visions will be granted.
Gentle and balanced, we live in freedom serene.
Feed from the highest wisdom on Life’s great tree,
and you too may learn to live like me!”
About the photo: This lovely old sycamore lives next to the historical Henry Bridge in Mingo Creek county park. I often wonder what tales it could tell from it’s years there, or if it was a sapling during the Whiskey rebellion that brewed in that area so long ago.
