Walking on High….

Tree Of Life

Yesterday I went  for a walk, it was my day off work and it was far too nice a day to stay indoors.. I’m lucky in the fact that I am very close to some wonderful scenery for walks, some on my doorstep and others within short drives to some wonderful places and some beautiful woodlands .. Such is the beauty of Sherwood Forest Country.. And not far from the National Peak Park ..

Spring here in the UK has been exceptionally Hot..As Hot as some of our Summer days. It got to a record high in some parts of  the country,  it was over 23 degs, in Scotland which broke all records for March..

As often is the case I love to sit in the quiet and just Be.. absorbing Nature and the peace.. Saying Hi to the occasional passer by and stroking the odd dog that bounds up to say hello.. I seem to have some sort of beacon which seems to say to dogs come on lets sniff out this Dreamwalker and see what she is about.. And I have one or two tales within Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary about my encounters with Dogs..

Such was my experience, I couldn’t  sleep and just had to write what came into my mind.. so around 2am out came my journal and pen.. and below is the resulting poem . The  Nature Photo’s you see are what I took along my walk. The Tree of Life I added as I just love..  However the Hawks were too high to get a photo on my mobile so I found a couple of Sparrow Hawks in Google Images…

Walking on High.

Today I awoke with a spring in my step

As an appointment with Nature today I kept

The Sun shone bright with skies so clear

As off I did walk with a smile and good cheer

~

2012 is the year of the shift

As I walked in the Sun I was given a gift

My gaze travelled high to the buds of the trees

And low to the ground was the hum of the bees

~

I sent my thoughts to the Creator of All

As I asked for his gifts and he answered my call

For up in the heavens Two Hawks they appeared

Spiralling on upwards my eyes filled with tears

~

A feeling inside me did burst from my heart

For all of these gifts we each are apart

No longer on ground did my feet seem to walk

But high with the Hawks I flew and did talk

~

They told me of visions and far reaching sight

And how to sail upwards in effortless flight

Teaching Patience and Grace as they glided with ease

With no earthly worries or grudges to appease

~

Higher and higher aloft I did rise

I danced with the Hawks amid the clear skies

Adrift with my thoughts I floated back down

As once more my feet did touch back to ground

~

‘The Shift’ is within as we awaken and see

As many more join in the flight to be free,

I carried on walking with heart full of love

And asked for another sign from those up above

~

For my journey unsure on the road I must tread

And appearing like magic I looked above my head

Two Butterflies danced on the breeze with such glee

Ascending to heaven in answer for me

~

We each see the signs as The Shift we all feel

As our hearts open wider in this world so surreal

So follow your Path and see where it leads

Ascension is coming for this Earth to succeed..

    Sue..this is SO beautiful. I am totally impressed. ‘Walking on High ‘ is a wonderful, beautiful, beautiful and beautiful poem, three times over, I identified with that on a personal basis….and –thank you for sharing those wonderful pictures.
    I have a friend that I have known for years. I ALWAYS know when she wishes to confer with me, for a specific colored butterfly inevitably appears and will stay, fluttering in front of me– where ever I am. How amazing your path in life IS.
    Again…this is SO beautiful. Blessings, ~R

    Beautiful DW…You captured it so well. Kinda like I was along on the walk with you. That would be nice! It is so beautiful there. My Dad was from Surrey and it was gorgeous there as well. If it stops being so crazy over there and this shift finally takes place with peace for all I might go through my duel citizenship deal. Not until the crazy Queen is gone….Thanks for this beautiful poem. Very eloquent. VK

      Hi Cat, so glad that you have finally got your breath back… Sometimes we need to take stock and Breathe real Deep as we let the shadows of those clouds pass us by.. But always the Sun is just there Hanging, waiting, and we can either walk in its brilliance or hide indoors.. So I am so happy you shared my walk… Breathing Deep with you my friend…. as you let all that is no longer required go……..Because Love remains with you at All times.. Love to you.. xxx ~Sue

      Hi Sheila, so happy to see you, yes the Derbyshire Dales hold a magic all of their own,, But you too live in some wonderful countryside too… 🙂 I’d say we are both lucky to appreciate nature and to have so much on our doorstep Sheila,, When I think of those who never get out of towns and cities, especially young children who have never seen wildlife up close except for Zoo’s.. It makes you really grateful for all of this Earths gifts and the path I have walked.. Have a great weekend Sheila.. Hugs Sue xx

    ‘Walking on High’ is a powerful vision given to you Dreamwalker at this ‘time’ in your life. Perhaps its meaning goes beyond what you share with us. I think there could be special meaning only intented for you.
    Whatever the case it is special; it is beautiful; it is ‘Walking on High’.

    Hi Sue,
    Those are wonderful pictures. I’ve loved pussy willows ever since I was a little girl and found some growing near my house. I rarely see them anymore and they arent even that common at flower shops…still I try and get some for my house whenever I can.
    Your poem beautiful!

      Hi Nikki, yes Pussy Willow Trees seem to hold their own Magic this time of year.. And I know a few sprigs look wonderful with Spring flowers like Daffodils.. And once upon a time I would have picked a few too.. But now I know that they are best left in Nature.. It was great to see them and the Bees were busy too.
      Flowers give of their lives to uplift and make our moments of remembrances and celebrations Happy Occasions.. For the moment they are picked, they give of their lives… But they come at our Birth, our Birthdays our Weddings, Anniversaries, Mothers Day, Special occasions, to brighten us up when we are ill, From loved ones and lovers, and they are still present at our Departure as we say farewell to this Realm… Flowers are a Huge part of ALL our lives, and one of the Greatest of our Creators Gifts to Mankind… Loved you dropped in to comment Nikki, Hugs back xx Sue

Today the temp’s have dropped about 10 degs, with a cool wind.. back to normal for our Spring, but the Hot interlude was nice… I just hope we dont get it going too cold again now as all the flowers, blossoms, and lambs are being born.. The weather for next week is cooler still, and frost and possible snow in places.. Seems our weather is like our World at the moment.. ‘ All over the Place’ ..

    What a beautiful sight..love the Willow tree, it is like a painting really.
    SO sweet the sheep..they are adorable animals..quite smart too.
    I will have to look around for these stories of encounters with dogs as I love
    dogs even though attacked by a few years ago when I was a kid.
    Farmer dogs mostly..jee they can be very territorial lol..

    I love this poem Sue..it is very enlighting…and it kind of takes me to that place in
    your picture …I imagine sitting there gazing at the sheep and lambs..the surroundings. SO neat ofyou to share these pictures of your day…really gives insight too.

    Weather here has been much the same in England although it has become colder here now..they say it will rain I guess it is good for the nature.. and funny just as I write this..the sun has come out lol…
    Have a lovely weekend you

    I have a painting of a Willow Tree in my bedroom.. well it is not a Tree but of the branches. Painted by a dear friend..she was a true artist honest to god.
    But she never did anything about it as she was so deadicated to her family.
    I think she would have been very well known.

    I did not know this was the tree of life…I like these branches for Easter decoration.
    Although I don’t have many plants in the house as my cats ter to pieaces..you know.
    I did have this tree in my garden when I moved here but it had to be removed as it was just too big for my small garden.
    In holland these trees are everywhere along the water sides… so beautiful.

      I just did a Polar Bear in pastels.. on my art and hobby page in Pastel drawing section.. for a family birthday gift.. he was thrilled with it, as he has a thing for Polar Bears!.. Maybe I should do more animals as I love drawing them.. … Glad you a Cat lover.. Me too..
