There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you…In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself. ~Ruth Stout
… Nest here
and for you,
I will create a home.
… Under the canopy of trees, daily dramas and love stories are played out…perhaps one day the language of trees will be deciphered, giving us the raw material for further amazing stories. .
Peter Wohlleben: The hidden life of trees
️I have late night conversations with the moon, he tells me about the sun and I tell him about you.
A portion of your soul has been
entwined with mine
A gentle kind of togetherness, while
separately we stand.
As two trees deeply rooted in
separate plots of ground,
While their topmost branches
Forming a miracle of lace
against the heavens.
Janet Miles, Images of Women in Transition
… And it was a radiant night, a night of soft conspiracy and the trees agreed that it was all going to be for the best.~ Zelda Fitzgerald~
The trees were gazing up into the sky, their bare arms stretched in prayer for the snows ~ Alexander Smith ~
