All my broken winged

butterfly thoughts


at the foot of the saintly tree.

Its leaves stirred-

Its balmy boughs spelled

a miracle

till each single

nymphalid or ringlet

could soar high-

I saw the saint smile

having read my prayer

to moor forever there.

May I always be

where all my saints live

in the land of trees.

  1. Each and very tree is a saint and they sacrifice their every part for the betterment of us.What a nice perspective you have put for the saints.

  2. I went on a beautiful trip this weekend to the mountains and we took a train up through them which was a treat. An old locomotive moving slow enough that we could truly enjoy them. There were places there where there once was moss that was as deep as 5 feet. It is hard to imagine. But being surrounded by those trees I found much peace. Just to breathe a free as they, it was refreshing.

  3. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally
    educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the
    nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few people are
    speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that
    I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

Thank You :)
