Auditory Trees


Β© Shainbird

The trees have ears, listening
To the whispers of the wind,
To secrets of human hearts
Beating below, swaying above,
Understanding, standing firm,
Occasionally fashioning earrings
Delicate or large, always giving,
Loving and ready to receive a hug.

    …and when you hug them, and put your ear to the trunk, they talk to you as well…

  2. lovely – in India they do more – the Banyan is a wise sage and bestows all wishes so people wish and tie threads on it remind it of its promises – the Neem is mr cleaner and sends away all pollutants and its leaves when dry are put in cupboards so pests dont eat up your clothes etc etc
