The Healing Wood ~ 1

Walking in the woods

Walking in the woods

 

Nature Heals

Sometimes when the world gets too much

As our inner mind chews over such and such

Take yourself off for a walk

~

When the doubts roll in

Creating that internal din

        Take yourself off for a walk……..

My thanks go to Kim over at Silentlyheardonce  who is a wonderful poet. Kim asked if I would take part in the 5 day photo challenge.. While I have given up accepting Awards this challenge is an easy one for me to take part in, as I had a set of photo’s I was going to post. But now with this challenge I will  add a poem I wrote a few years ago now a couple of verses at a time to each photo.. And bring you the last photo with the complete poem at the end.

The Rules are as follows..

Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
(Sporadic posting is alright if you’re unable to post each day.)

My nomination for this first photo challenge is Jo over at Chronicles of Illusion

Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend..

Its a Bank Holiday long weekend here in the UK so I will see you soon as my posts will be scheduled over the next few days..

Blessings

Nature does Her Thing.

“What a joy it is to feel the soft, springy earth under my feet once more,    
to follow grassy roads that lead to ferny brooks    
where I can bathe my fingers in a cataract of rippling notes,    
or to clamber over a stone wall into green fields that    
tumble and roll and climb in riotous gladness! “

 Helen Keller

Remember last Autumn when the old compost heap on the allotment looked like this?

At the Back of the shed the old rubbish heap is going to be levelled. This is where we intend to grow our Butternut squash next year. As the allotment next to us just put his squash on old soil and left them.. They were 3 sizes bigger than ours.. So here they will have room to spread out to their hearts content :-)

Then Hubby got to work and started to dig. First digging the rectangle bed out which I was going to set flowers in and my apple trees in. 

Dug over Rubbish heap

He then dug out the compost heap and levelled it  using the old stone boarders from our front garden.

If I had wanted these nasturtiums to grow through the top of this broken old fire onion chimney they most likely wouldn’t have.. But just look at the transformation of the old compost heap..  You now see the new  overflowing compost heap contained behind the abundant Squashes and Courgettes. 

Well now it looks like this.

Some times you just have to let Nature do her Thing.

Why Are we so Afraid?

This photo is from  Kindness Blog and if you are not following then I recommend you do .  The Words to this post are~

To those who attack ‘migrants’ online. Please take a few moments out of your day to really look at this photograph. And rethink.

Here is a father fleeing the war in Syria, crying whilst cradling his children.

Should he stop searching for a place of safety for his young family and take the children back into the war-zone?

What do you think he should do? What would you do in his situation?

Rethink!

I did.. And I wrote a Poem today as what I saw in the links below breaks my heart. 

syrian family feeling the war

Why are we afraid to share?

How is it we humans forgot to to Care

What would you do to protect your own

Wouldn’t you want to Flee a War zone.

~~

They gave up everything to seek a safe place

What is happening to the Human Race?

That we fear so much to give them a home

Didn’t our Nations escalate their War zone 

~~

What will it take to open our hearts

Imagine your Family ripped apart

These people have risked all in life and limb

Yet still we are afraid to let them in. 

~~

Why are we afraid to share?

We have to Change and Begin to CARE!

People Power~ Making a Difference

Following up from my last post The Future~ Standing as One with Nature today a success story from Germany over stopping some open cast mining for fossil fuels.. All be it will be temporary.

 While I admire Germany for a program for phasing out its nuclear plants after the Fukushima nuclear disaster by 2022. Germany has a good record for renewable energy and is investing more in solar and wind .  But during this transition they are continuing cutting great swathes of land in open mining for fossil fuels using Brown Coal the dirtiest form of fossil fuel,.. More can be found here about how Brown coal wins a reprieve in Germany’s transition to a green future

In the mean time well done to this group of people who led the way in showing some People Power in Action saying enough is enough..  

In my Email box this morning came this Newsletter

Dear friends,

Today over 1,500 people woke up with reflections of a momentous and emotional weekend. On Saturday over a thousand people — with the support of hundreds more — entered the Garweiler open-pit coal mine in Germany and stopped the work of the world’s biggest diggers in their tracks.

You can watch the success here.

It wasn’t an easy task, but we can be proud of the courage of activists, organisers and support structures that made this happen. The swell of solidarity that came in from around the world showed us that we are not in this fight alone and meant a lot to the people who participated.

Over the coming weeks there will be more reflections, photos and stories coming in, and we hope we can count on you to share the story so the world knows what our movement is building.

We said “Ende Gelände – Here and No Further!” and we succeeded.

Thanks so much for your support – it means a lot to many people,

Emma on behalf 350.org

 I hope you will feel free to share.

Love and Blessings

~Sue~

The Future ~ Standing as One with Nature

Wake up to Nature.

Wake up and savour the beauties that abound,

Wake up and honour all life that is around.

We take you for granted, even the air we breathe

Take time to look at the blossoms on the trees

~~

Look deep into a flower and see the wonders there

Take time to stop and listen to birds in the air..

Watch the glistening water, ripple over stones

Be thankful for the morning, these gifts and our homes

~~

We take Nature for granted, as she bestows these gifts for free

It’s up to us to look after her, for she’s there for you and me.

What if one day you awoke, and the air you breathed were black?

What happens if nature decides she is fighting back

~~

And no longer shall the bees pollinate the crops

And no longer will the rain give you those pure drops

Open your eyes, for we work hand in glove

Wake Up, and be thankful, For Nature needs our love

The Lyrics of this Song can be found HERE along with more information about  Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 15 year old youth leader with the non-governmental group Earth Guardians. who wrote “Speak for the Trees” was written in the summer of 2014. 

Thank you to Brad whose post Awesome Stories connected me with this young man and his endeavours to enlighten people about taking action into caring for our Planet Earth.

I was impressed with this young man as he said in one of his videos 

” The Biggest Challenge  we face is shifting Human Consciousness not saving the planet Because you know the planet doesn’t need saving,

but we do..”

And   Xiuhtezcatl  is right.. Mother Earth Will eventually heal from all that we have done to her.. But will we still be a species upon her?
