I can’t figure it out.
I’ve pondered and analyzed
to my heart’s discontent
and still, nothing makes sense.
I think I’ll take a walk
into the woods,
to be embraced
by the gentle breeze,
to be touched by
and I need to see the trees.
They have a keen sense
so I’m going to ask them.
Yes, the trees will know.

That is where I go Lauren.. and after spending time among their branches, we come away feeling clearer of mind, even though we still do not make sense of the world.. I know the trees always heal my soul..
Love to you my friend… Sue xx
You said it perfectly, Sue; thanks for your insight. I find respite in the mountains and at the beach, depending on my mood. There’s something about the trees and the waves, their soothing ways and healing powers…Love to you, too, my friend…♥
I am seconding Sue’s resonance of your poetic thought, Lauren, that a quiet walk into nature’s silence offers the best healing to many of life’s ills…xx.
Thanks so much, Raj! We seem to be in agreement with nature and the trees. All the best to you! xx

Gentle, thoughtful. We need more of this.
Aww, thank you! I really appreciate that and I’m glad you enjoyed this!
It is always relaxing to commune with nature, even if it may not always give you the answers.
I agree with you, Binky, and I still think the trees will know. 🙂
The trees know everything. I go talk to them all the time.
I think they do, too, and along with talking to them, I hug ’em! 🙂
I have a few questions to put to those trees too. lol.
I don’t think there is a limit, Ian, so go for it! 😉
Trees have such wisdom, don’t they, especially old oaks.
Yes, they do, Jean. Who doesn’t love them? 🙂
Trees have a calming effect on me. I’ve always gone to the trees.
