The Standing Ones
Stepping onto the crunchy deck top planks ~ the air crisp & clean touching her skin. The glow to the east begging her gazing. There it was ... the hint of pink peering through the trees in the mountain sky. Her breath exhaled as the chill under the cozy oversized robe settled into comfort.
The snow dripping upon the pines ~ so tall and regal in their ways. The branches heavy as if they could kiss her boots on the treetop platform on which she stood ~ in wait.
The eyes of the white aspens looked back at her. And then... a young pine ~ tucked in between her two elders ~ began to shimmer and slightly sway. The morning air vacant of breeze ~ yet there she stood in her spiraling ways. Giddy with excitement that the woman in the human skin and curly hair noticed her day break greeting. And then ... the protectors and guides to her right and left began to spiral ~ swaying in a vortex of “We see you too”.
And soon ~ all the trees that hugged her peripheral and straight eye views ~ were Talking. Smiling. Acknowledging.
The unity was palpable. Human and Standing Ones connecting at the heart of their souls.
She then gave all her noticing focus to the biggest & tallest ~ surely eldest in years ~ thick with pine cones upon her crown. Her wisdom was patience in knowing she would be seen. And in that moment ~ the woman with hair curls & the tree with cone curls ~ were dancing together in ancient wonder.
A breath rose within the heart of her chest ~ full of love & sacred connection. Her day had begun but a lifetime of nature watching was being lived. Yes! We are we.
May you open your eyes my precious friend ~ to curious watching day after day ~ breath after breath. For there is a deep connection of love & acceptance between all sentient beings. Aho!
