No Breeze


no breeze this day
yet I see the breathing of the trees

deep within my belly
something calms
and blends

to feel their breathing as my own

  2. How stunning! I rememember this kind of stillness from my childhood, when my own breath was the loudest thing in the world, before the chickadee would start to call.

  6. We should be able to appreciate each season, I know I would enjoy feeling the trees breathe in the cold air but too many people here want tropical sunshine all year round. Sad I think.

  7. This is wonderful winter photo!I love the composition very much. I miss this sight in my country in which many places are flooded due to heavy rains. That's very unusual for this time of the year. But weather is strange everywhere.

  25. The silent beauty of nature nurtures the soul. As you say "...to feel their breathing as my own." Communing with nature is a walk with God/Divine/All that is/Creator. Inspiration at it's finest is found in Nature. You are always an inspiration to me with your wonderful photography. You capture Nature at it's finest. Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P.

  26. Hi Tammie,
    It is true that trees do breath when you stand next to them. I like to stand amongst the trees and close my eyes. We can all plug into nature if we take some time out!:)
    As always a beautiful photo and words.
    I will miss the snow when it melts away...
    Lovely to see you again.:)

  30. Your words and lovely wintry view lead me to stop and consider what my world would be like with no breeze ... would I see the breathing of the trees too? I may never know until I remember to pay attention while traveling away from the sea. Thanks for planting the idea within me.
    Hugs and blessings,

  31. you may not believe this, but I love the snow. I LOVE it. Hate the cold but love the snow, and I do because of pictures like this!

  32. The trees certainly clean up our lungs so that we can each inhale what we exhale. We each convert a life giving force to one another.

  40. Oh Tammie when I close my eyes I can feel them breath too ... and it's magnificent. Thank you so much for reminding me of the great woods in BC... my heart aches for them as I miss them dearly.
    But this photo does it all for me.
    I take deep deep breath now and be silent.

  43. A moment in which you feel the "rightness" of things, a moment in which you can breathe deeply, like the trees.

  44. This looks like next year's Christmas or Solstice card to me! I can hear the stillness and feel the breathing of the trees just as you write about it when I look at this one.
