Who's Got Your Back?

I'm leaning against this Giant Redwood

A beating pulse spreading

From the belly of the earth

Peristaltic through my bones

I'm feeling warm and held

Feeling known and owned

Like someone/something's 

Got my back.

Thanks Don, Ray, David. Human relationships are so complicated and things get lost in translation all the time. Trees are definitely more straightforward and reliable. They bring the best out in me.

Nature is always trying to speak to us. Many times we don't hear it, or if we do , disregard what it is saying

Hi Hazel. I've said this before but I feel it is highly relevant. I made a life changing decision while sat under an old oak for company. I didn't know which way to turn, but something just clicked and the last thirty years have been based upon that on the personal level. Was that a sort of God? It was good enough for me. The beauty of nature is really the joy of the unfathomable.

Hello Hazel,

I wonder if trees use the term "people hugger" as we use the term "tree hugger".

Your poem suggests they might. I have no reservations about having felt the embrace of mother nature, something we can rely on to be true and keep us in our place.

If there is a deeper truth it is nature, it consistently speaks it with authority.

Nature can help us to understand our place, enjoyed this Hazel.

David.
