Sometimes it's hard to let go
 I looked up to the Horse chestnut branches
and whispered to it,"let go that last leaf" -- morning light flanking its swelling buds
Let go's over
you have survived
..we have survived
it's easy from here on
and then I  hugged it
..the tree..just in case
 Because an old gardener that I once knew
 told me that trees need a spring
whack on their trunks to get the sap moving
but I am non violent
So I hugged


  1. Beautiful. I hugged a gigantic tree in Yosemite a couple of weeks ago. I am not sure why except that I needed its I'm thinking, maybe it hugged me.

  2. ahhh....Bee! you hugged a tree in yosemite
    why that rhymes
    trees are angels
    truly angels taking tree form
    without stretch arms
    anyone who loves a tree
    knows God

  3. Thanks for the chuckle. You're adorable.

  4. Your beautiful tree, beautiful in it's winter nakedness and soon to give you more joy when it clothes itself it spring finery.
    I love trees, am very much a tree hugger. I don't have any trees on our section - I have been very sad about being home again because of this. Plus no trees mean no birds - such great sadness. Enjoy your tree and your birds.

  5. Dear Suz,
    Trees are Angels!
    This was a wonderful post.
    Thank you.
    Hugging trees and loving every minute of now.


leave me a line of joy
