Roots Of The Tree

there stands an aspen ...

Roots Of The Tree

There is an ancient saying, "From the root of the tree, there is but one man and one woman", which is aptly applied to the view outside my window.

There, stands an aspen, with the image of a man and a woman, on the papery bark of it's trunk.

When I first noticed "my neighbors", I was deep in thought, staring out the window. At once, my eyes caught  the sight of the man and then, the image of a woman, slightly above him and to the right.

I smile at this nature art and often think of the words, "see the tree"...and remember a description of woman, I had read years ago, that woman is slightly above man.

Each day I look out this window,  to see the faces of the trees. Sometimes
I make up stories for them.

I drink morning coffee and tell myself another story about the man and woman, sometimes of how they met and sometimes of how their images were sketched in the bark for lovers and children.

The truth is, I prefer the story of romance, that the love they shared was unique and they came to proclaim undying love and this is how their images were drawn by the roots, of the living spirit of the tree.

I like this story, it has a simple message, to love and know the nature of love.
