One for the Tree: Seasons

oxygen
needs respiration
and every part of you is covered
green
not
tight

GIVING

dead skin
needs exfoliation
and every part of you is covered
brown
not
sore

SOOTHING

blankets
are for protection
and every part of you is covered
white
not
dead

DREAMING

All life
needs rejuvenation
and every part of you is covered
green
not
born

WAKING

      2. Rest one day
        Will for sure come
        In dreams one day
        Will become dream again
        Body is beautiful
        It knows how to take
        Soul is fragile
        It needs care now
        Was growing body
        Forgetting the Soul
        Time now again
        To love the Soul
        Body meets its wants
        Soul needs less
        The less we forget
        The more we want
        Happy we are not for what we have
        Crying always but to want more

        But thank you will make sure body gets the rest………. So very kind of you

      3. The one who shared is unknown still
        Searched outside I failed too
        Now with tears no more there
        Some shine and smile on face returns
        Doing nothing anymore
        Nor trying to do
        Allowing things to happen
        Flowing in the flow
        Who I am I thought
        Is not who I am
        Searching failed
        Resting time came
        Here and now, in present I stay
        Things will change
        As people and time too

  1. Thank you, Anne. God gives so many examples and lessons to us in nature. I love using this time of year to teach my children about recycling through watching those trees. God wastes nothing. It is amazing and inspiring. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Beautiful . . . and I especially like the style (?) of poetry that you use: very short, crisp, pointed and sectioned off by interconnected words that form a meaning unto themselves, i.e. GIVING, SOOTHING, DREAMING, WAKING. I’m really very tempted to try this myself! 🙂 All the best to you w/blessings!

    1. Thank you so much! I think words are like legos, you just play with them until you get something you like. I hope you do try it and have a great time in the process. I would love to read what you come up with. Blessings your way also and have a wonderful weekend!😊

  3. i haven’t gotten in mine yet…too busy laughing and filling an exploding giggle jar. After reading more carefully, i would wish you a son, not named Chronos, or a daughter, not named karma…as to the fat lady…well, your king seems to have settled that score. Still mulling, though…i have a bath built for two…Lol (in case you needed to think…lol)😊

      1. Why would that be a change of heart?…Lol
        Kids are the BEST part of everything, imo. I would still love to have more. I remember being warned, “wait till you have teens” and how awful it was going to be. imo, it has just gotten more fun all the time. 😊 More kids mean more people to play with and love.

    1. Lol…my mom still climbs trees in her late sixties (collecting wild grapes and bow hunting), and my nearly ninety year old grandmother still golfs.
      The only excuse that I would have for not climbing one would be laziness.
      The bar has been set high.

      The leaves are changing in my backyard. I want to go hug a few of those trees.
      Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  4. It’s interesting to watch the cycle of the seasons. Some people feel sad at this time of year, but I don’t. The falling of the leaves is just one part of the process of renewal. Snow covered, in bud or in full foliage–the trees and plants have something to teach us about life’s cycle at every time of year.

  5. Hi Tanya,
    I know Jacqueline.
    What a poem! I loved your metaphor of the dead skin needing exfoliation. Your photo fits the mood. I’m always trying to improve my blog photography.
    I met you on Gary’s site. You liked his feature of me, so I came by to thank you and introduce myself.
    If you need any blogging tips or invitations to blog parties, please check out my site. I blog over at http://mostlyblogging.com.
