The Eternal Tree

I am Alive Forever and always Essence Rebirth Renewal I have earth to ground me I have wind to move me I have fire to cleanse my spirit I have rain to quench my thirst for growth I have sun to enlighten me feed me I am my own mother and an extension of the whole I am Earth wind rain sun fire I am as old as life and I am as young as time I am shelter to those who seek me I am a bird a flower and the breath of the earth itself I am exactly where I want to be I am life I am first and last the beginning and the end I am one from many I am what I am I live I grow and I die. I am Reborn unto myself I am the great circle My limbs know no Boundaries; while My leaves whisper The one truth of the Whole through the Seasons changing Colors that I wear Upon my heart's Sleeve, I'm home To Earth Mother’s Melodious Life; I Sing for the whole World to hear - trees Are Earth Mother's Song Blowing 'round the leafy Globe; eyes of the world song {{{{{{{{{{{{{{ Of the Mother breath of the living soul of the earth }}}}}}}}}}}} ***Senses evoked here are: Touching, Tasting, Hearing, Smelling and Seeing ***Elements evoked are: Water, Wind, Earth Metal, and Fire
