The Presence of Trees

"I have always felt the living presence of trees

the forest that calls to me as deeply as I breathe,

as though the woods were marrow of my bone

as though

I myself were tree, a breathing, reaching arc of the larger canopy

beside a brook bubbling to foam

like the one deep in these woods,

that calls, that whispers home"

- The Presence of Trees by Michael Glaser

 

That is one of my favourite poems and it popped into my head this evening as I rode my bike through the glowing branches of the nearby forest, the sunlight poking through the branches and warming the air. Perfect spring evening.
