Tree Wisdom


β€œIt is stated that when a tree has passed a hundred years of age, a divine spirit will come dwell inside it, and show its appearance.”
β€” Toriyama Sekien


Spirit of the tree
Share your wisdom
give me shade
show me how to grow strong
using what nature gives me.
Spread your roots
and encompass beauty
Give a home supportive of life that you encounter
Forest spirit
teach me how to withstand storms
that seek to break me
and to bend with the winds of change
Help me learn to reach the sky
while aiming ever higher.
