Tree Wisdom

4 Aug

Kim wrote this poem on January 24th, 2014 and asked that it be read by her brother at the close of her memorial. So many people in attendance asked me if I would give them a copy that I thought it best to share it here.

Tree Wisdom 

If there is anything 
I have forgotten 
To tell you, 
I trust the trees
To whisper in your heart,
Ancient wisdom 
That you and I 
Have heard before
And will hear again.
We have been
Together always 
Collecting the silent
Sacred words of the 
Druids, fairies, wood sprites, gnomes –
Listening for the murmur
Of the sap rising, the respiration of the leaves 
The stately still bubbling of
Resplendent in the green and brown
Spanning heaven and earth, 
Reminding us of who we are
Yet rooting us here. 
Take shelter in their shade 
And know that I am with you
