My poem ‘lichens’ has been published here at BLUEPEPPER. Sharing the link and first few lines to my poem. Do read through for other beautiful verses, articles and stories. Thanks to the kind and inspiring editor Justin Lowe!
Trees are earth maidens, eternally grounded and looking to the sky. It seems they are born with a much significant purpose than we humans can ever think of. All we can think of is why we need to preserve them for our own selfish needs.
Other than being useful to others they must have some purpose of their own why they are born. Though life for trees starts deep down the earth as tiny seeds, and then roots, once they break the earth only sky is the limit. Trees must be the only creation that are half in the earth and half above. If we see a healthy and beautiful tree it’s only because lot of hard work happens hidden from our eye.
This was the first thing that came to mind when Light journal was themed on ‘wisdom’. What better wisdom than of a tree😌
into the new year! Tying up the loose ends, and knitting the fringes of a setting year with the rising one. Though poetry makes it a seamless journey, there shall be pauses and lulls and line breaks. Taking it all as it comes…here we stand at the threshold of another verse trying to decipher the lyrics of a song yet to unfold.
Wish you all a very happy new year. I am sure He plans to keep us all strong for the spread.
