Talking Trees


Photo taken at Sleepy Creek Lake, WV on 4 October 2009.
Do trees talk? Sure they do. Don’t believe me? Try sitting under one on a lazy afternoon or plop down on an old wise tree resting on its side. Relax your mind and listen. You are sure to hear it whisper the hidden thoughts of your mind, the desires of your heart. These old trees, if you let them, will interpret your dreams and let you know what you both need. Love, clean water and air . . . a view to the future.

Amen. We are all of us -- plants and animals included -- breathed into being at every moment, and must sit very still to experience our co-creation.

A beautiful fall scene and great personal reflections on life. Too many people never take the time to listen to the sounds of nature.

Woodswalker--this is so true. Trees know almost everything.

Lovely scenery. Nature is always talking to us, we just have to open our hearts and listen.

Walking in the woods and listening to the silence I find there always makes me feel connected to something greater...and it is "silent" there, even with the sounds of nature.
