You will find something more in woods than in books.  Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters. -- Saint Bernard

Psalms 1:3 The godly man shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.


The eyes are always watching

Alert for anything that will feed the soul

The way the bark of a tree swirls around a knot hole

How old man sits on the bos

Sometimes it most be stacked like a cunning prey

Other times it fives itself like a meteor in a night sky

Then we have to make something of it

With marks and lines on surface, energizing all the spaces creating depth, pattern and meaning.

Trees - Poem by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see  
A poem lovely as a tree.  

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest  
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast; 

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray; 

A tree that may in summer wear  
A nest of robins in her hair; 

Upon whose bosom snow has lain; 
Who intimately lives with rain.  

Poems are made by fools like me,  
But only God can make a tree. 


One touch of nature makes the whole world kin- Wm Shakespeare
