I think i remember being a tree.
Feeling the wind move right through me.
I grew strong….The earth as my blood.
Breathing air as given,
drinking the flood.
Waiting for fire to come,
I relinguish the seed.
So they
may come
to be……..

A tree.

t-fourlee has graciously allowed me to post her poem “LIFE” along with Gai’s Child. Thank you t-fourlee for this beautiful poem : )

this started with a fractal that reminded me of tree roots. Evolution of and idea. : )
Roots were created in Apophysis 7X, Figure was created in Poser, Tree and background were created in Vue 7, Water drop was created in Bryce and all were layered and filters applied in Photoshop.
