glimmering birch bark
soul exposed on silver limbs
longing for new leaves
secrets wrapped in tender buds
to be whispered on a breeze

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Wordy Thursday with Wild Woman ~ The Tree Sisters

Sherry tells us that there is a women’s movement rising all over the world. Guided by Clare Dubois and her Board of Directors, in the U.K., Tree Sisters: Seeding for Change, aim to plant a billion trees world-wide this year, and they are well on their way.

She would like us to plant some poetic trees: love in response to hate, compassion in response to suffering, hope in response to desolation. She wants us to tell her how we feel about trees, or perhaps a special tree, or write about Mother Nature, and the effects of climate change. But she wants us to do it with hope, determination and the spirit of the women all over the world who are planting those billion trees, who are loving our world back into healing.

    1. Thank you so much, Sherry. I love our silver birch. Our neighbour says it’s too big and wants us to have it chopped down but that is not going to happen!


    1. Thank you, Kerry. I was hoping to write some poetry today, as well as get some washing and ironing done for our trip next week, but we’ve been without power most of the day. It’s just come back on. I could do with a it drink now 😊
