The wind

I love those occasions when I’m in the garden working on the flowerbeds and behind me come this strange and mysterious, and awesome sound… like a rushing river approaching my sacred space. Dominated by this resonance; this kind of a hum, or a swish of watertight, I turn around hoping with all my heart to discover what causes such magical songs in the privet… what kind of a phenomenon provokes this miracle? 


Then... there it is.  It is the wind. A rush of wind in the privet.  And when you look up all you see are those majestic treetops swaying side by side making music with the wind; intertwining branches and foliage and leafy heads under swiftly clouds… and whose mighty hands are those which seize them… and who is the One making them quiver as to create such magical rhythms?  It is almost as if the very Spirit of God moves over the privet, filling our space with peace and majesty.   

How magical, and astounding the sound of the wind in the Privet is to me.


There’s always something pretty blooming out there. I like to tease this bramble of nature that’s by the edge of my garden by just going as far as its boundaries goes and steal some of its blossoms from time to time. But I must be very careful. A whole new world rests there, in that strange wood, and it dwell there, too, myriads of creatures unknown. Nature is so wild and strange and dangerously unpredictable here and I have so much to learn about it, it is overwhelming at times. 


I decided that every dreamer should have a magical tree growing in her garden. We have some gigantic, gorgeous trees growing in our property, but they rest out in the woods where I don’t dare go. So I had to find the best one out of all the flimsy ones growing along the creek and decided that this was it… 


So here it is....

My magical tree!

and how I see it in my mind of dreams...

Truly magical! ;)


May the light of day awaken in you.

Love

  4. Ah the wind, of the 4 elements, wind and water are my favorites. Both have such wonderful sounds, so calming. There are several large elm trees above my back yard on the hill and when the winds are strong and blowing through the trees making them dance, it's like you can hear the songs of nature. There is one day that I will always remember, however sadly. One of my cats, Charlie, got sick with a rare form of cancer. He had surgery hoping to save him, but I soon knew that he was not going to recover and I could not stand to see my sweet boy suffer so I took him back to the vet to be put to sleep, When I got home I went out to the garden. It was windy that day and all of sudden the wind blew hard, it felt like it went right through me and I knew Charlie was gone. I felt him go.
    There are many ways the winds speak to you, not all sad like that day. Sometimes the feeling is just glorious, the sound of the wind in the trees.. Music is a magical thing, it evokes emotion, memories and feelings. But there is no music like the music of nature. What song could ever compare to hearing the call of a wolf calling to its mate or the singing of the birds in the mornings..
    I know you hear the music Cielo and how it makes you feel.
