Ever See A Tree, Enjoy The Rain?

The overdue rains,
finally came to southern California

and
I watched the trees,

as they stood quite still,
in anticipation, perhaps disbelief
of each droplet …
Discerning if the rains were here to stay.

Can you imagine how a tree feels, when it finally rains?

  • after months of scorching hot sun
  • collecting all kinds of dust and debris
  • willingly providing shade for those around
  • becoming food, shelter & highway for many

It’s not easy being a tree!

Do you see,
how grand the tree
can be?
Imagine how a tree feels
when the rains begin?

and
I watched the trees,
as they stood quite still,
in anticipation, perhaps disbelief
of each droplet …
Discerning if the rains were here to stay.

Most of you are aware of my Tree Family page,
which is different than your Family Tree.

You know that I have developed a LOVE for trees, which is fairly new to me. My ‘connection’ began the winter of 2014, in northern Michigan. Discover where/how/why/when I met Tree Face, in “A Guided Encounter with ‘Tree Face’, .

Tree Face warmed my heart and
opened my eyes
to the world of trees.

We were meant to be,
Tree Face and me.

Tree Face and I had a wooderful conversation.

I am grateful for the rains,
here in southern California.

And so are the trees!

They hold a knowing that
All Is Well.

Watch them now
as they rejoice and welcome the rain

and
I watched the trees,
as they swayed and shook,
danced and frolicked,
in anticipation and acceptance
of each droplet …
Knowing the rains were here now.

and Now is all we truly have

Imagine a time on Earth,
when trees could walk.

What might that look like?

Or feel like?

Would there be a sound,
as they traveled the ground?

What about their foot/root print?

Thank you for reading along and stretching your imagination muscle,
(It’s kinda fun! Huh?)

    • Thanx! I truly appreciate knowing that. I was going to replace the sound with music…. and the nudge said, “Leave it…”. So I took that path of least resistance and “Left it”.
      .
      The trees were so very elated and played often in the rain…. then the rains stopped. I am told it will be another month before more rains come.
