Advent Meditation: Plants and Trees

IMG_1271May the wildflowers and grasses / Whisper their wishes into light.

John O’Donohue

IMG_1263 I part the thrusting branches

and come in beneath

the blessed and the blessing trees.

Though I am silent

there is singing around me.

Though I am dark

there is vision around me.

Though I am heavy

there is flight around me.

“Woods”, Wendell Berry
