The Wisdom Of Trees

sunlight filters through the trees  
and kisses my skin
I looked to the skies
smiling inside myself
the tree guardians look on in approval
my oldest friends...the trees
my protectors when I was afraid
confidants when I need to talk
no mortals would ever know the secrets--
the trees kept hidden
they still watch me today from the gardens
warding off evil intent
nothing wicked this way comes
while they are on guard
my spirit is one with the trees
as their branches reach to the heavens
swaying in the winds
sending prayers skyward
inside me, I hear them chant in unison
it's like the beating of an ancient drum
they are the heartbeat of the Earth
keeping all-natural order
they are the great watchers
recording the comings and goings of mankind
when I had no mother to hold me
the trees did  
they sang me lullabies  
in the tousling of their leaves
and the creaking of their limbs
I found safety in their arms
our secrets kept these many years
we come together again
today I sing to them  
sending my love on the winds
may it reach their ears
for we are one
