With the Elements
I am one the earth, of the earth
I am in the fire, of the fire
I am on the water, of the water
I am in the air, of the air
I am from the whole, of the whole
And all these elements join
I am with the elements
with the creatures
with the celestials
We are all of, in, by,
on, for, from, through
Here I stay found
Here I offer a home
Come and see
Come and visit
Come and thrive
If it can be,
then let's see,
Alternatively, from the comfort of a chair, imagine reading this passage as you walk to an oak tree and say hello. The picture is of oak leaves.
Photographer: Elena from Belarus, Winter Tree
In the forest deep and wide,
The trees stand tall with grace and pride,
Their branches reach up to the sky,
And sway gently as the wind goes by.
In spring they bloom with tender leaves,
Their canopies rustling like a symphony,
Shades of green that soothe the eye,
A place to rest and simply lie.
In summer the trees offer shade,
A cool refuge from the sun's bright glare,
A place to rest, a place to play,
The perfect spot to spend the day.
In autumn their leaves turn gold and red,
A feast for the eyes before they shed,
A carpet of color on the ground,
A sight to see, an amazing surround.
In winter, they stand alone,
Bare branches like fingers reaching for the throne,
Silent guardians of the land,
A steadfast presence that will always stand.
Oh, trees, you're more than just a plant,
A symbol of life that we must chant,
May we learn from your resilience,
Your strength, your beauty, your brilliance.
<-- Here is the author of the Poem: About Trees
