Gems 4.66

I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ♡
Here’s another light-filled ¤ Gem ¤

Under an oak tree
a young girl heard music,
a promise yet to be.

A chorus of songs,
one by one, they came. She sang
each song joyfully;

Every song engraved
deeply on her grateful heart
for eternity.

Niki Flow

“There is a legend of a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor even conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. When a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come…” -Nipun Mehta, -Embrace the Grace, Celebrate the Infinite-

    I do so love our backyard oak tree and often hug 🌳 ❤️. Thank you for sharing your poem and how it was inspired by Nipun’s reflection :).

    Mindy! Me too! I hug this tree in the photo quite often when I can go out. She lives near me. I feel when I do exactly the way Brenda Salgado put into words recently, how the earth takes from her everything she doesn't need any more. I feel like this tree and others like her are my empaths -- they pull out the darkness into themselves. They are strong and wise enough and rooted enough into the world and each other that the healing is so much easier for them. It's easier for me when I remember our "roots" are connected too, but invisible on this plane of existence.
    You know under1000skies was almost "under1000trees" -- because trees were my helpers from earliest memory. =) ♥.
