THE CONTENTMENT OF TREES


NaPoWrMo2022 Day #1

Inspired by this quote by John Muir:

“I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!”

Tall and silent, towering over me

branches spread wide

tenderly intertwining

with your forest companion’s

like lovers holding hands.

Your roots journey out

beyond your canopy,

cross my path,

then dive beneath the surface

meeting with others traveling there.

Here in nature’s cathedral

you live together in harmony,

peacefully communing,

all species fulfilling their calling

without our interference.
