Wisdom Through the Trees and Stars

In the most ancient of forests, angels would dwell whispering

secrets to men and to women formed

born from the soil of the Earth,

they rose up slowly

and the Earth called them,

her children

the First People.

It is true the animals listened too

as the Creator spoke wisdom

through the trees, and stars.

And the people still dance

in order to remember.

The Grandfather Tree


It took so many years to get this tall, so many branches growing from his roots,

he never mourned his place though, always bending with the wind.

So many storms producing scars, gnarls and knots with bark

now forever etched, but he can still smile, especially

in the spring, and he prays to this day

for the young couples

as they walk by

hand in hand.

The Wisdom of Beauty


The wisest of sages never lived in caves, instead they were captured by the fire of autumn,

living in the purple and magenta, the gold and red, inspired and writing books on

the wisdom of beauty. Which is always much better – than the gloom of caves.

The wisdom from the woods has always been a little scary

seemingly speaking to our hearts without a body.

And yet – we are lifted when we turn

our face upward, listening

to the leaves. Seeing

past the forest.


Seeing with eyes closed, and hearts open.
