Talk Amongst the Trees

I overheard on my walk today faint whispers through the trees.

I stopped to listen and all was still, even the falling of the leaves.

As I continued on my way, the grass again began to sway.

A gentle breeze blew by, and the limbs of the trees relaxed with a sigh.

I looked up and around then down, feeling in great company.

I heard a buzzing near the ground, and saw an insect hovering before me.

Its wings were purple, gold, and long, and it approached me buzzing a song.

Yet, I knew it was just a distraction, from the talking tree’s reaction.

The sun shone through to the forest floor,

and the surrounding foliage appeared to grow more.

I was rooted deeply where I stood, as if the earth below took hold for good.

I looked up towards the heavens and all I could see

was the canopy above looking down at me.

I felt a message, strong and clear,

As if the trees had whispered it in my ear.

I felt at home, safe, and free,

Like a little bird sheltered within a great tree.

And as I stood and listened, I heard the trees begin to say,

In a type of silent, mystery language, the trees began to pray.

What moment of pure reverence, complete serenity.

What delight, what great pleasure, what pure divinity.

I fell to my knees and listened, amazed by their symphony,

Rising tall throughout the forest, their branches dancing in harmony.

And so I began my dance with trees.

And wouldn’t you know I spread my wings.

They were purple, gold and long.

And soon enough I was humming along.

And to this day I say, we must walk through the trees and pray.

If we could all just talk to trees.

I know they’d pray for us and for our peace.

I know we would dance in harmony, becoming one with all divinity.

So if you walk through the forest and you hear a whisper stay.

For you might just hear the trees, and together pray.
