the tree

history is carved in the bark
love found on the branches
her trunk filled with history
surviving years of beautiful sun
soft breezes and torrential rain
violent storms
scars from lightning
she stands strong and tall
as her leaves dance to the ground
her beauty is unsurpassed
her secrets never to be told
her wisdom overflowing
more than any man could comprehend
i press my ear to her
and hear the whispering of the ages
the laughter of the spirits
her warmth fills my soul
i am born again within
her knowledge and forgiveness
i am one with nature’s
most beautiful gift
the tree

    Okay, I only do this if I really like what I see: her trunk filled with history or her trunk filled with ancient secrets?

    Ahhhhhh, to be one with nature is a beautiful thing. Even if we’re left half in the dark. Very evocatively charged sentiments. I’ve breathed them in, xox

  • Trees fascinate me…there is so much history and knowledge…I had a friend who once told me that she believed souls surrounded trees for protection!
    Thank you. ♥♥♥

    Not only is this beautiful, but it speaks to me in so many ways. I think this has layers and layers to this. Nature, Earth, Tree and Woman. Even a man could easily identify and relate. Love these words:
    i press my ear to her
    and hear the whispering of the ages
    So much you have put into this one Sally.
    xoxo

  • Oh, I was very emotional when I wrote this poem…a lot of thoughts and memories surrounded me. Thank you. ♥♥♥

    Nice one Sally !! I had a wonderful, enlightenning experience as a child sitting meditating under a Poplar Tree. Your poem just brought it back to me. One leaf, one star, a grain of sand, the Cosmos beneath my feet, and all within and beyond me….. Thanks xoxox
