My Creative Art~Trees

Oh mighty brothers that reach up high

Your branches swaying in breeze from sky

Tell me as I sit beneath your shade

What wisdom have you for me today..

Spring one with your leaves so fresh

Your colours of green replenish and re-fresh

Your blossoms shower us in petals so light

From winters sleep you grow in delight

Summer Oh how you please

As you rustle your full grown leaves

Your breath so pure so we may breathe

I pray this Earth you never leave

Autumn of golden rich fruits you carry

To sustain life in harvest berries

Fallen leaves and wood for the fire

Replenishing larders, of you I never tire

Winter with your ever-greens

White coats of snow on branches gleam

In your forests shelter you bring

Silent and tall as you sleep until Spring

Lets not forget our brothers the Tree 

Hundred of years they stand still and ‘see’

Majestic and strong they give life to all

Save our trees don’t let them fall.

Spring VortexSummer Vortex

Autumn GoldWinter Silence

Above are the paintings I did,while taking time out. Trees are so important, and I love nothing better to sit beneath a tree and meditate feeling its energy.

Our Relationship to the Earth has changed as we have become more aware of how our actions can affect the balance of Nature, we are beginning to see ourselves as part of the Global Community and we are embracing a more heart-centred common goal of preservation. Trees are part of that community and we need to understand how important a part Tree’s play in our lives..

They not only bring us the very oxygen we breath, but they give homes to thousands of species of insects and birds providing not only food and shelter but the very habitat that those species need to survive, as well as food, fuel, and shelter for us Humans, When the trees start dying, then the insects have no home and also die, this has a knock on effect around the whole eco system.We must not forget we are part of that knock on effect.

Trees teach us the importance of renewal as they shed their leaves and seeds, their outer achievements and find strength and vitality through a period of rest in the winter months, They teach us stillness, about slowing down, and finding contentment within. They show us the importance of having strong roots to maintain stability.

We are destroying the lungs of the Earth as the many forests are cut down.. Here is a site which explains what you can do to conserve Trees.

Remember the ‘Standing Ones’ as they were once known, and let us remember they give us our very breath we breathe, we owe them a debt of gratitude. They need our respect. Enjoy your walks, Enjoy your Trees, and Enjoy Nature..

Blessings Sue Dreamwalker

    Sue, your trees were worth waiting to see, and the poem you wrote to accompany your art is beautiful. I have a hard time seeing how any one could take a tree for granted, when I look around at the destruction we as a society do to the planet it is amazing to me that the trees haven’t died off from all the air pollution alone.

      I’m pleased the wait was worth it 🙂 Many unfortunately are not in good health and many diseases are springing up in them killing them off.. The good thing is that many industries are now recycling paper and replanting programmes are in place, but it takes many years for new trees to mature to replace those which have been felled…. I hope you enjoy your weekend and dont overdo the indoor projects you have got planned.. Today was a sunny day,, at LAST! even thought still chilly.. We got some SUN!!! 🙂

    Good poem hun! 🙂

    We have some trees around here from evergreens to sycamore and silver birch.

    A few of the older trees had to be cut down because they had become dangerous, but the new plantings have been vandalised by the local kids.

    The truth is we NEED these trees, but they get no chance to grow…

    Love and hugs!

    I greatly enjoyed your poem Sue, and your paintings, …We humans are not taking our caretaker ship of this planet seriously… So much of nature is finely balanced, and as you so rightly point out, trees are the lungs which enable Mother Earth to breathe and grow from strength to strength, to lose so many through ignorance and greed is unforgiveable… I pray that we wake and heed the dire warnings being felt throughout the world, whenever a catastrophe occurs… through our own bad management and short sightedness. I hope future generations will grow to understand the debts we owe, and pay them back in kind, by being caretakers of renown for the right reasons, being care-ful and care- ing…. love and light my friend… With voices such as yours hope is always there.. xPenx

      I wish more could understand that Pen about being Caretakers, although maybe the word should be Care-givers… as we seem to have done our fare share of ‘Taking’ over the years from Mother Nature.. I do not envy our future generations and the state of the Globe we are leaving to them..
      Thank you, I am one voice among many .. But awareness is now escalating as to the plight our world is in… There is always Hope! .. 🙂 Love to you ~Sue

      No Time is flying by Wolfie, and yes the trees are wanting to slumber longer this year, who can blame them, I hope the Jet-Stream takes a move in the right direction soon… Oh I know what is going on for most part Wolfie.. and its not pretty… and if we all took our blinkers off at some point maybe we could open our eyes and really ‘See’ what is really going on.. But it maybe make our hair curl, or in your case Wolfie your fur! Lol.. an interesting couple of video’s you may like to view are the 1-3 on my Environmental Issues Page..

      Marja, thank you, its good that you sense the energies which every tree gives off.. We have long forgotten our connection with our Trees and if we look at natures pharmaceutical cures, we will find she holds much medicine in trees and plants.. Not the chemicals we are pumped with today often then creates another problem for another chemical imbalance to take hold needing then another chemical to put it right… Which reminds me I should update my herbs page and put more on there for people to read some home remedies.. 🙂 Loving seeing you Marja, and I will be by this week.. 🙂

I also love them and this year, have grown even more fond of them. I feel a deep respect for Mother Nature, and the “Standing Ones.”

    Dear Sue,
    In honor of the standing ones…
    “We must not forget we are part of that knock on effect.” Thank you so much for checking in with me on my project. There’s a lot of work that I am doing that’s not visible in the image yet. It’s what goes into the project, sometimes that cannot be seen, or can, by some…
    ❤ Wishing you the sweetness and comfort that the day can bring…
    xoxo Ka
