Forever Steady

IMG_4010

Staring up high and beyond their treetops
Where birds create their family dwellings
Dreams begin to bloom and worries lessen
Manifesting a most profound message
Some have feared the footstep of humanity
The sound of distant sawing instilling fear
Instead, in this sacred place they are protected
Never will their integrity feel threatened
The welcomed footsteps upon their soil
Arrive gently as awe-struck souls
Their majestic beauty is never-ending
Their glorious existence is transcending
Living in blissful peace with other flora
They communicate through deep-winding roots
Linked with the embrace of Mother Earth
How lovely to live in this space of Grandeur!

  1. Inspiring words Lauren! Dreams can blend in everywhere but they definitely get a new horizon at such peaceful places. All fears melt under the majesty of treetops and they slip through those empty places merging into the light, which endows them with new beginnings.

  2. Lauren, thank you for your lovely post. The picture is beautiful and so are your words that show us the strong and deep bonds between the trees and
    earth. And between us and them. 😊 .

    1. Thanks very much for your beautiful and kind comment, Miriam. I agree with you in that the connection is present between us and the trees, but it’s felt even more when visiting one of these magical redwood groves. Awe-inspiring, to say the least, and I hope I haven’t bored others with so many redwood posts and poems. πŸ™‚ πŸ’—

      1. No, I’ve only seen a few redwoods in Vancouver park many years ago, but it wasn’t in a natural forest setting like this.

      2. Well, hopefully the opportunity will come your way sometime in the near future. I think you’d love walking through a big redwood grove like this. πŸ™‚

  3. Beautifully expressed, Lauren. Long live the redwoods! I hope humans never ever approach them with saws – just awe and reverence. I can imagine the majestic silence in that forest.
    Hugs πŸ’žπŸŒ²β€οΈ

    1. Thanks, Betty, and I share your sentiments exactly. You would love this grove if you ever have the chance to visit. Sending hugs πŸ€— πŸ’—πŸ¦‹πŸŒ»

  4. Indeed a place where dreams begin to bloom and worries lessen! You’ve captured the sense of awe and inspiration, magic and time so beautifully in this poem, Lauren! Ah, to be able to listen to the wisdom these trees surely have to share – wouldn’t that be wonderful? 😊❀

    1. Your amazing comment warms my heart, Sarah! Thank you, and I hope all is well in your world. Much love and big hugs! β€οΈπŸŒ»πŸ˜πŸ¦‹πŸ’

  5. Beautiful thoughts dear Lauren.. may our footsteps forever be striding purposefully forward, There is a whole world of communication going on deep underground with the roots of trees and the fungi which links them…
    May we all learn to respect these magnificent Elders of the Forest .. Whose knowledge we can not know, for they have seen many hundreds of years pass by..
    Wishing you a wonderful week and weekend to come Lauren.. ❀ x

    1. Thanks, dear Sue, for your lovely comment and thoughts that I completely agree with. And wishing you a wonderful weekend, too. I actually landed in the hospital yesterday and spent the night. I’m okay, but waiting for answers, wanting to go home. πŸ™‚
      Anyway, enjoy your respite. Love and hugs! β€οΈπŸ’—πŸ¦‹πŸŒ»

      1. Thanks so much, Sue. I was in the hospital all weekend but home now, although not completely well. Doing more lab work and tests this week. I truly appreciate the prayers and love….hugs back..πŸ’—

  6. “Living in blissful peace with other flora
    They communicate through deep-winding roots.”
    What a wonderful illustration on how all could benefit if we had that same kind of synergy in the human race.

I appreciate your thoughts!
