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.
