The Secrets of a Tree

Because they are primeval, because they outlive us, because they are fixed, trees seem to emanate a sense of permanence. And though rooted in earth, they seem to touch the sky. For these reasons it is natural to feel we might learn wisdom from them, to haunt about them with the idea that if we could only read their silent riddle rightly we should learn some secret vital to our own lives; or even, more specifically, some secret vital to our real, our lasting and spiritual existence.

    I tried to respond according to the instruction, but could not find a way into the space indicated.

    But thank you for so beautifully reminding me, both by your pictures and Kim Taplin’s eloquence, of the wonder of God’s all-year-round gift of trees to us!
