Cross Over

Prompted because of a post of mine on 'the other blog',
I searched on the phrase 'how to do' and found this ...

Work of the Trees

The children came to dance beneath the trees,
to laugh and tumble in the rusting leaves,
and learn of simple life by Nature's touch.

Then they grew tall, broad and long of hair,
And knowledge was seized like a stolen pear
while the wisdom of flowers was trampled.

As men and women they forgot to sing,
of such natural truths that wonders bring,
and their spirits withered in sad decay.

Yet some still heard the laughing leaves of dawn
and became shaman, wizard, seer and crone,
and rekindled the spark of innocence.

They live where what was, is what now will be,
nurturing powers drawn from memory,
for within yourself is rebirthing Light.

Living challenge will dictate 'what to do',
but 'how to do' must be found within you,
each by each to wonder where ever when.

Beautiful, faucon. I love the thoughts behind the words. We will all find that spark of innocence again in one way or another.

One hopes that as we age
The How to do"
"The What to Do".
will not be taken from us by those perhaps well meaning souls
For me,
Do not take my ability to see,touch and smell the flowers and at times plunge my hands into the soil that has helped nurture me....leave me in the soil whence I came when the time is right....
Not locked away in a box or container whence I did not come.

As is said "I am of the Earth"
