Artist's Description


deceased, dried up and gray
life has left them
they are watchers now
who guide us on our way

some still stand
some have laid down
they take turns watching
for hopeless, helpless sounds

they feel our distress
when we get lost
they have many faces
are sincere for our cause

listen closely you will hear
them whisper to one another
they are chanting for you
so you will not fret or fear

and when the moon light
shines on their face
do not be afraid
they are just aged

weathered and worn
wise too their roots
their chanting songs
will heal and soothe

they are watchers, waiting
waiting,and whispering
old timers, who lived a good life
souls of mother nature
leading you to the light

reminding us humans
we should do the same
life is short, give and receive
gracefully everyday

image by linmarie- photo manipulated with a paint program too pencil drawing with soft gold and green watercolors.
if you enlarge this you will see many faces in these old cedars I photographed.
will include the inspirational photo, that was not worthy of posting , but I was inspired to create a new meaning for it.
