trees

January 4, 2011

loreena mckennitt sings yeats’ words into me.

Beloved, gaze in thine own heart,
The holy tree is growing there.

trees have taught me to live. to go on no matter what the weather was. i saw trees of high pride and courage. holding tight to their earth and still rising. they gave me the best lesson and i hushed. it was worthless all crying, in their eyes set for high skies. how could i dare to whine and give up when they held tight to what little earth they held on slopes and hillsides, fearing falling and dying. they held tight to their earth and so did i to mine.
