Unbearably Sweet

The trees are
Singing your
Heart  song
Forest  music
Flows through
And around
Unbearably sweet
Violin translates
Prayer into the
That is Wind
The forest choir
And sighs .
Wind Horse
Through forest
And beyond the sky

    I love how you mixed metaphors here as they are all actually the same prayer. Beautifully moving…

    Truly beautiful… Great poetic imaginary. The third stanza truly stands out, I think!
    Thanks for sharing. All the very best to you. Aquileana 😀

    • Esther Ling Hortus Closus inspired this one, with her comment “Listen to the wind” on Wisdom Of Trees. She plays violin. I have not heard her play, but her poetry is often intensely sweet.

      However Wind Horse is a (Tibetan) Buddhist concept. Some American indigenous people do use similar techniques, but the term “Wind Horse” originated in Tibet.

      I love how you see so much.

        • Prayer/spirit, and wild space cowgirls, therefore you, ride Wind Horse out into the Universe, dispersing Strong Good Spirit, and in the process generating more. and more.

          Write a prayer, or poem on a strip of cloth. Tie it onto a tree or somewhere that will move with the wind. Or speak or sing or make music with your intent. Wind Horse will carry your prayer to where it needs to go. A bit of you will get to ride, too.

          That is way simplified, but also how it works. Different colors have different meanings, that I don’t know. It is not so different from Lighting A Candle or dressing respectfully or genuflecting. It all helps to focus your attention so that your intent will have more power. ❤ ❤

          Ride your prayers! Ride Wind Horse! Ride! into the cosmos….. into the universe ….

          I wonder if Willow trees would have special significance for you? Willows do make the best diving rods … ???? 🙂

            I am going to write my prayer on some material and hope it touches my husband and son.
            There are three willow trees out the front of our house but none in our garden. I shall hang my prayer on the nearest. Thank you for explaining so much to me. ❤

          • Fathers and sons. 😦 It should not be so difficult and painful. It has to get better. It just has to. ❤

            The tree in the next door garden has long branches, so I can hide the prayer flag, I shall be discreet no names no pack numbers! Just a few discreet words.
            There are no bylaws here that I know of regarding this. We are not allowed guns, but hey, to me thats okay.
            I am delighted to know the craziest lady in the woods!! 🙂 xxxxx

          • … I hope there are no neighborhood ordinances or restrictions against hanging bits of cloth in trees. In some areas trouble can come with fines an liens on deeds and gossip and I don’t know what all.

            I really do live in the woods and all of my neighbors are crazier than I am, though they think I am the worst, which is OK.

            There are a lot of small freedoms that are unavailable in suburbs and urban areas. Like clotheslines, horses, dogs not leashed, fresh eggs, target practice with guns and/or bows, (yes we can shoot) …. prayers flags in trees. There might be a White Tara, or other Buddhist, shrine somewhere near you with accommodations made for prayer flags? If you husband or family are concerned about public image, you might want to be discreet. It could make things worse, instead of better.

            ❤ ❤ ❤
