Celebrate Your Creative Self
"A vein of poetry exists in the hearts of all men." ~ Thomas Carlyle
My tribute to mystical, magical trees that the Cherokee called "standing people"...
Trees, proud standing people
stretching fingertips to the sky, reaching, praying
glorious attention, breathing light.
bending and firm
rooted chorus line
dancing with the moon, the wind, the clouds
framing bursts of stars
tender rugged celebration
absorbing and releasing life
each holy branch
holding the power of the Universe.
