Talking with the Trees

For a context for these cryptic quotes please see the post ‘The Flower of Experience’

Talk more with the trees, rocks, the wind…and talk less to yourself.

  1. Perfect advice! I shall be doing that today at the forest.

  2. sharing a little poem….

    When I Am Among the Trees

    When I am among the trees,
    especially the willows and the honey locust,
    equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
    they give off such hints of gladness.

    I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
    I am so distant from the hope of myself,
    in which I have goodness, and discernment,
    and never hurry through the world
    but walk slowly, and bow often.

    Around me the trees stir in their leaves
    and call out, “Stay awhile.”
    The light flows from their branches.
    And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
    “and you too have come’into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
    with light, and to shine.”

    Mary Oliver
