Trees: Standing Ovations

I used to wonder about trees swaying in the breeze. What stories are held beneath the bark? What secrets are blowing freely that I cannot hear?

But these days, in the winter of my years, I just hear approval.

Applause. Applause
As evening draws.
The day is spent.
Trees nodding consent.

Trees, Wilderness, Nature, Woods
Applause, Applause.
Bending low.
Acknowledgement 
Of God's overflow.

Applause, Applause.
In nature's laws.
Oasis of sounds
As life rebounds.

Listen to the trees talking in their sleep. What nice dreams they must have!
