"Tree, gather up my thoughts
like the clouds in your branches.
Draw up my soul
like the waters in your root.
In the arteries of your trunk
bring me together.
Through your leaves
breathe out the sky."
- Daniel Beaudry (spiritoftrees.org/poetry/breath)
I was motivated to create this after watching my neighbor clear-cut his yard of ~20 trees. I would lie under their branches and watch birds hop from one to another. We place such little value on trees. These majestic beings.
