the secret life of trees
Most especially in the Fall trees talk to me.
I hear precious truths.
The other day I met a radiating beauty
who fiercely told me,
“Do not hold back. Let the true YOU shine.”
I gasped. Her energy and message took my breath away.
“I promise,” I replied. “I promise to shine!”
As the promise flooded my being
my breath returned.
I twice recognized her as me:
Her shining presence, her oxygen coursing my body.
