Dreaming Tree


I found a new spot to dream away the warm spring days.

A shady place to put down a blanket and watch the heavy bumblebees flop from flower to flower. A place to feel the soft breeze pass through the tall grasses making them shimmer a soft hue, whispering secrets to my soul.

What a lovely place for a tree to thrive. She has space to stretch her arms and rustle her leaves. She can peek at the sea from where she stands. She can feel the sun warm the deep crevasses of her bark, and she can feel the rain drops fall from leaf to leaf, to ground to root as it satisfies her thirst. She can quietly eavesdrop on the ramblings of all who take shade under her.

A dreaming tree, she is.

  7. That is a great tree, you have great tree taste! But I think it looks more like a tree that is a he, rather than a tree that is a she...

  13. I thought i commented on this when I first saw it - must've been dreaming. :) Actually, computer problems shut me down, and I'm glad because I didn't even see the flowers on my home monitor - it looked like water. Which was fine, but still, the truth is always better. Well, usually! But I ramble. . . . This is such a wonderful place, a wonderful tree. And yes, I know it is a she for some reason. I, too, want to be her, to stand in both the sun & rain. Can you imagine the stories she can tell?
