LIKE A TREEYou may think it is the sun setting. But in fact, it...


You may think it is the Sun Setting. But in fact, it is the full moon rising, with the skies borrowing the hues of orange and red from the other side, where the sun seems to be falling like a big ball of fire. As I captured the image and rested in the quiet stillness of the landscape, Karen Shragg’s poem “Think Like a Tree”, popped into my head.  Here it is for your enjoyment.

Soak up the sun
Affirm life’s magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to
hear your own leaves rustling

“Think Like a Tree” by Karen Shragg in “Tree Stories: a Collection of Extraordinary Encounters”.  Edited by Warren Jacobs and Karen I. Shragg. (SunShine Press Publications, 2002)
