Tall Trees, Long Walks and Small Hands...


**************************
I saw this photo....and was flooded with memories...Walking with my son for hours...his small hand holding on,sometimes letting go to explore...but always near...under the cool of the trees.

Evergreen Cathedrals
*********************
Mystical and magical....
Breezes that whisper...
Small Childrens Names...
Carrying Distant Secrets....
and Childish Dreams....
Birds Calling like lost lovers...
Branches stretching swaying....
with the weight of rainladen leaves....
Afternoons stand still...
Timeless and Precious....
Mystical and magical.

E4E, I remember walking like that decades ago under the canopy provided by millions of dutch elm that forested this city. They are all gone now, harvested because of disease.

Now the unfettered light of day shines down on the concrete jungle. The streets and walkways seem to never be cool anymore. When did trees become an annoyance?

Parents don't want to leave their dark houses to walk with the kids, just shoo them out to find themselves without the benefit of shade.

Sad.

Peace

E4E Open Grove is a Holistic oriented publisher looking for contributors. Claudia Christian is one of the founders.

*shrug* I am not sure about the holistic thing and where it fits in my world of dark meat and thorns.

But it may be a good fit with your peaceful self...up a wee bit early are ya...sharing the early morning with one on the other side of the lake?

Peace
