Seeped in Magic

There is an old deep magic in this forest
which has seeped into my bones
becoming one with roots
that reach to
embrace this Earth with tenderness…
… a deep old magic which resonates
through my blood and recognises
the kindred sacredness
in the beating of my heart;

The energy is pure and palpable
embracing growing trees and rich earth soaking
in moisture which nurtures
the lines of my blood, making me weep
with gratitude for all that holds sway
in the stillness of deep old places …
… the shadows echo and whisper
echoes whisper of wisdom and nature
which resonates through my blood
and recognises the kindred sacredness in my soul

As we transcend the unconscious
and as we transcend the ego
and as we transcend the chaos
to a place of deep inner understanding
We will find a place in our hearts
where we will know the truth of our own heartbeat
And we know we are home
in the deep old magic of the forest.

I relate to this piece. Such a wonderful feeling to be alone surrounded by nature. I adore trees through all the seasons. I found this lovely poem both calming and visual. Thank you Sharon.

Indeed the world around us is magical.... we are connected in so many ways.... not only in that we live in and amongst forests
, but move a few chromosomes around in our DNA and we are the tree we sit under, or the deer and bear that walk in our dreams... we truly are inner connected with all living things.... and if this isn't magical then nothing is....

And yes, this is HOME.... beautiful art and magical words Sharonlee

Perhaps if we could maintain that feeling of gratitude we might transcend the ego. Beautiful illustration.

I agree... personally I don't find gratitude a difficult state to maintain.... but that's me.
