Sitting With Natures Realm.


I sit on the ground

My back against the old oak tree

Looking out to the world.

That tree has seen change

Over the many years of its life/

As I lean against the tree

I feel its memory in me.

The wonderful things

That it has seen and heard

Over its many years.

The wonder of nature

Changing every season,

The new life in Spring,

The old life in winter.

Many people have touched it

And sat beneath its boughs,

Many of them kissing

Showing their love,

And sometimes hate.

But the tree has heard

And seen it all.

As I sit touching it

Peace comes over me

As it shows me my life,

My life is so good,

And I become one with it

Loving the world we are in

Amongst the glory of Nature’s realm.

  • dusk arising

    Sometimes I think aout being reincarnated as a tree. Just as you say, those matured trees have seen and lived through so much. What lessons would our spirits gain, what wisdom.

      Yes d a, what wisdom they must have.

          I can't say reincar-wotsit this time of the morning, even if I did believe in it, which I don't! lol.
          I read of Oak Anniversary being 80 years. So you and I have known great-great (about 5 million great's) oak anniversaries!

          • Goldfinch60

            We have certainly had a great many anniversaries Orchi and may there be many more,

                Nature is truly such an eye-opener. It's splendor is all so ripe and it feels rejuvenating to be one with it. I enjoyed this journey

                          Scenes wrapped up in the bark of an old oak are felt by sensitives and I truly believe the tree know it too. A gem of a read dear Andy.
