The Wisdom Of The Trees

They know everything, viewing unsuspecting beings, as they pass beneath, they whisper their secrets upon the air. Leaf-songs no human can interpret, ride the winds like a bird, winging its way across azure skies. bird on a branch rustling leaves Owls sing their night songs among the secret-trading leaves; the bark of a tree is more than protection; it hides secrets of its own. A tree frog scurries to grab dinner on a branch and a beetle quickly vanishes. eyes in the dark crickets chirp Mother Earth births universes within universes, but the trees are her personal library.

Great poem. There's something very noble and dignified in the upright and placid stillness of a giant tree. A testimony to time, age and wisdom.

Wow, what a great way to view these majestic trees. You have given me a new outlook, though I love trees and often wonder what they have seen in their lives but this is a new way to view them. Thank you for sharing
