  1. Such Gifts

    I’ve been listening to the trees all my life.

    Fifty years later, I understand they have
    been talking to me.
    Whispering, willowing waves of branches
    and leaves. Saying we love you. We are the
    tickle in your ears, whispering words of peace.
    Soothing your eyes in times of grief.

    Sing to the joy of emptiness, we smooth away
    your fears; we bathe you in the grace of giving.

    Giving is the greatest gift.
    Giving away your name, your ego, your shame.
    Giving you forgiveness. Give what you have
    learnt. Knowledge is a sharing gift. How can it
    be a secret?

  2. I’m left speechless at the beauty of this photo
