Monday Offering...sound and sight

"So let me be like the trees
 where I can rustle my leaves 
to join the wind in the sky
If this was all a mistake, 

I'd rather leave this place 
then be a breathing lie"

~Advice from a Tree~
Dear Friend
Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of your  true nature
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with hoy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go like leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet renewal of Winter

Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Be flexible
Remember your roots
Enjoy the view
~ Ilan Shamir

Happy Monday my lovelies


  1. mmm.. I adore trees as you <3

    What a beautiful poem.. I am going to snatch it if you don't mind for myself and maybe a picture down the road :)

    "Seek nourishment from the good things in life."


    Catching up with you this morning.. been so crazy busy with my mom and dad in town. Have missed your sacred place here...have missed you.

  2. Oh and Cat... gorgeous shots of your trees!! My gosh.. the one with the sunflare is my fave!!

  3. Wonderful advice! You are full of love and light, aren't you?:)

  4. Needed this reminder today, and after I read this the first time I went upstairs and saw 2 deer out my kitchen window. My prayer for the day is answered..."Breathe on me of breath of God"...thanks friend!

  5. such a sacred embrace of life and nature, and the communion of us all.

    you spread such light, dear friend.

  6. beautiful. the trees know how to do it :)
