Oak Tree


he leaned his forehead against the tree
quieted his thoughts
and 
waited

his heart melded with the trees heart
the tree let flow
hundreds of years of stories

stories  about the birds that came to nest and sing
the fungi and lichen it gave home to
the fairies that lived beneath its roots
the insects that live in its bark

the lad came to know 
those who rested in the shade of this tree
or found shelter from storm
 he saw the lion that napped in its branches
and so much more

he learned that a tree lives a big life
a deep life
a generous life
roots embedded in the earth
limbs dancing with the grace of the heavens

this lad returned as often as he could
to rest his forehead and heart
against the tree

AC: Earth Day



Love love love
for 
our Planet
Earth

~

We really do have pretty rocks here in Montana
I found a surprise turquoise colored rock in the forest last weekend
I am told it is copper that makes the pretty color:


This past winter saw the end of my bridge, it broke. 
Today I built a new one.
Such a wonderful feeling of accomplishment!


Now I can walk from the earth on one side of the creek 
to the earth other side, yay! 


Last week I drove an hour north
seeking wildflowers. 
I was delighted to find the lovely Pasque flower and our native bumble bee!

~
So much love for our planet and all it's wonderful treasures!

I ordered a watercolor sampler
from Legion 
8.8 x 11"
gorgeous papers!

It came in a beautiful folder that feels as though it is made of watercolor paper:



This painting is on Lanaquarelle CP 140#,

it feels rough to the touch, I enjoyed the texture.

I could scrub/lift some paint off better than 
other papers. I would love to work with it again.

Wonderful to try something new
and
I look forward to trying the other papers.

Scribble Picnic: Rabbit


his heart told him
to wait
and 
trust 
that soon the rabbit 
would nibble the carrot
and
they would be fast friends
