573. Listen to the trees as they sway in the wind. Their leaves are telling secrets. ~Vera Nazarian

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
~J.R.R. Tolkien

Deep in the ground
Far beneath my feet

My mother’s lifetime ago
A seed, a root, a tree began to grow.

Buried in the soil
It once lay alone,

Till the seeds, the root, the tree began to show.
Deep in the ground

Far beneath my feet.
A root became a tree.

~Caitlynn Rose

Every tree in the forest has a story to tell. ~Israelmore Ayivor

Life rises in the roots, and leaves. ~John Piller

It was majestic in beauty, with its spreading boughs, for its roots went down to abundant waters. ~Ezekiel 31:7   ✝

  1. This is awesome Natalie. I reminds me a little of the most recent class I did with the mixed media. I don’t know if you saw my most recent post, but it’s also about trees and roots. My inspiration was more the need for the sun for it’s growth, nourishment and strength though, so that’s what the poem is based on.
    This is a great pic. I think I’ll use it as inspiration for some type of mixed media in the future.
    Thanks Natalie.
    Hugs and blessings.
    🙂 ❤


      • Awwww, thanks Natalie. I just finished another one. I’ve decided to use one of my songs on it, because I thought it was fitting for the piece.
        Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. As for me, busy, busy, busy. The kids just go out of school for the year.
        Blessings and hugs.
        🙂 ❤


    • Thank you, Cookie. I love trees too and somehow in winter I feel safe and think of them as protecting sentinels around me and our property. I love your description of them as the bones and undercarriage of Mother Nature. Indeed that’s what they are. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤


    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it, JoAnne, and thank you for reblogging it. Go to the settings on your blog and click on “General” and the scroll the very bottom where you see the word Snow. Put a check in the box and click save and then it will start snowing. Love and hugs, N ❤
