Infinite – IF

Daily, I toil in a part of nature’s paradise. I look out of my office window and see three enormous redwood trees. They form a semi-circle around a little rickety bench.

There are days, when I sit on that bench, near these luscious beauties, which I have named “the three sisters”. Wondering often, if they could speak, what infinite wisdom would they share.

They are infinitely magical to me, changing the lines of their bark to peer at me in all kinds of shapes, color and forms. But, no matter the transformation of these “sisters”, they always appear as women, whispering to me, daring me to discover their infinite wisdom.

But, I cannot… all I can do in my mere attempts, is to sit in their beauty and try to capture a fleeting glance, a colorful whisper, a dancing tone…knowing their infinite magic will outlive mine.

This week, in stillness, I try to capture the infinity of nature and peace…let’s all meet there in that infinity.  Peace

  12. This is an inpsired post and a beautiful image to illustrate it. I love the treatment of the leaves as a pattern and how those little shapes contrast against the solid tree shape.

  13. A holy place resides among those reds. The last time I was there, I stood in the midst, experienced their embrace, and did not want to leave. A wonderful space in an interesting place.

  17. I really love this post. I too love to sit among the trees, listening to them speak to the wind, each other, to me. I also agree that they hold old wisdom and as I sit beside them, I hope some of it seeps into me.

    This is a lovely piece. Thanks!

    Poor Renee, chemo is so brutal, but she can do it. Please know that I am keeping her and you in my prayers.
