Are you a tree hugger? Here’s today’s poem from p.10 of NATURAL BEAUTY AND OTHER POEMS.
Advocate for the protection of woodlands or a fool trying to save the world? A crunchy, natural deodorant, faux hippie or deep ecologist respecting all life? Somewhere along this spectrum, do you find yourself somedays?
Perhaps when “visiting Nature” or walking a sandy beach picking up litter like you were taught by some conservation speech.
Or one more new green deal; can we connect while grieving as our life slowly goes extinct?
Will we someday find ourselves leaving, hugging a tree with our last breath or volunteer our organs to a research body farm?
What will it take to realize we are born and die in Mother Earth’s arms?
Reading your Tree Hugger poem reminded me of being out in the woods yesterday. As I was walking out of the trails, I felt moved to utilize a try for some ‘push hands’ qigong as a way to connect with a tree in Mother Nature. There are many ways to hug trees. And thank you for the reminder about National Poetry month. Well done Uncle Pat. Really appreciate your inspiration.
