Thanksgiving and the Holidays


During these holy days, I want to join you in a celebration of life, love and the beauty in this world. So here’s a poem and art illustration from The Tao of Trees to remind you of the magic of love and the power of gratitude.
This is poem #3 and it’s in The Path of Beauty, one of seven paths in the illustrated poetry book.


Yesterday I did not see this tree.
I was in a hurry and walk past it.
After all, it was just another tree
like the many lining my path.

Now I stop in wonder.
Rain drops hang from the naked limbs,
like diamonds glittering
in the fingers of creation.

Like fairies, they twinkle
inviting me to play and pray;
filling me with gratitude.

This trunk is no longer ordinary.
Father Winter’s dazzling garland
has transformed this humble tree
into a celebration.
