Tree Family

Most folks have a
Family Tree.
I have a
Tree Family.

Here you will meet the trees of my world.
Each tree is uniquely individual.
I love them all.
We met as friends.
We are now a growing family.

Have you ever ‘met’ a tree?
Gazed its height?
Explored the bark ?

Do you see the striped caterpillar?




Did your tree wear leaves or needles, perhaps it was bare?
Could you hear the wind combing the branches?
Do you know what a tree feels like?

Speaking of how a tree feels …
want to know what happens when you touch a tree?

The tree says;

“They touched me. Look, look! A human touched me.
It felt so wonderful, they actually touched me!
Maybe they will touch me again…. “

That is a true story !

So if a mere touch can make a tree that happy, imagine what a hug can do.
Not to mention what a human gains from that hug.
Have you hugged a tree lately?

Thank you for visiting my Tree Family.

  1. “… and not that I am better or worse than other trees, but simply
    I am a different tree, a different tree…”
    Your post reminded me of a song “A Different Tree” that was quite popular year ago in my country. Thank you for your poetry and your poetic outlook on life and everything in it.

    • Thank you so very much Liz! I tend to view things, a tad different than most. I value your comments greatly. I will soon become more active and look forward to discovering more about you.


  2. I think what I enjoy the most from all your posts is that you are truly the epitome of a child at heart no matter how matter your age! This post is complete evidence of that! I hope to be like this when I get older as well – still adventurous and excited about the little things in life! 🙂
    Great post!

    • Bingo on simplicity! Keep life simple and do what you love! Follow your passion! I speak from experience, not philosophically.
