While trudging through the snow this morning I pondered how the rolling-hilled trail I was on was a lot like the proverbial story of walking to school uphill both ways in the snow. Today's tree-hug was truly a welcome relief.
My new tree-friend, a snowy coifed birch, didn't hold back her amazement.
I was impressed with how her papery bark-swirls and twists played in the snow.
A sweet tree-maiden's long lashed bark-eye peeked out at me.
Her smooth lenticel impressed limb stretched up to the sky.
The soft curve of snow-crystals delicately placed in between the trunks inspired wonder. Message: Imagine the gentle flow of nature shaping your life. The ups and downs, the struggles and times of relief. All part of the Way. Imagine peace
