Nature's Chair for All to Share



Truedessa's Collection





















come sit with me on nature's chair
open your mind to beauty outside
autumn trees have a story to share
sharp-shinned hawk, your guide

open your mind to beauty outside
there is a world of wondrous color
sharp-shinned hawk, your guide
open your eyes, see and discover

there is a world of wondrous color
behold, the spirited red dragonfly
open your eyes, see and discover
on iridescent wings, soaring high

behold, the spirited red dragonfly
can you feel  the winds of change
on iridescent wings, soaring high
whispering in a land now strange

can you feel  the winds of change
great ancestors know your feelings
whispering in a land now strange
come to the river for quiet healing

great ancestors know your feelings
rise up beneath emotional waters
come to the river for quiet healing
breakdown your inner borders

rise up beneath  emotional waters
autumn trees have a story to share
breakdown your inner borders
come sit with me on nature's chair

  2. Hi Truedessa - so true - our ancestors lived on a newer land, we are on the changed land, let alone what we're doing to it ... yet the bones of the earth carry on, and trees will grow and give us more nature ... and more stories ...

    Wonderful bench ... cheers Hilary

  7. Your poem lifts me up, Truedessa. In dark times, it is beautiful to think of the spirited red dragonfly, and the ancestors, who must be very alarmed right now. The winds of change blow dark. Yet we raise our lightness against them.

  17. A stirring call to break out of the inertia, a lot of us feel gripped by ... following world events that have rocked so many of the mainstays of western life, that we took as a "given". I love how you make it clear that there is still beauty and peace to be had.
