Tree Speak~

A Red Maple Tree spoke to me

this day upon my walk

all the other trees were quiet

so I was surprised when it started to talk

It rustled its leaves so adamantly

made me realize it had something to say

so I said, "What are you trying to tell me?"

and I kept going along on my way

Walking with my puppy jingles

But.... on my walk home

the feeling of that dryad's words

worked it's way deep into my bones

At home I looked up symbolism

of the red maple tree

and saw that its meaning

was definitely sent for me

So when you are out walking

and a tree shakes its leaves at you

don't be complacent...just LISTEN

because trees talk to very few.
