haiku my heart - Hugging Trees

Wrap yourself around
a tree. Give your fears away...
Fill your heart with love!

*****

I was recently taught to hug trees
in a whole new way.

You line up your entire body with the trunk,
placing your arms around the tree
as if it were a person...

Give then to the tree
your deepest fears, worries,
your pain...

Trees are the closest match
to our own human luminosity.
They take these fears and transform them,
just like transforming carbon dioxide
into oxygen.

Feel yourself
grounded to the earth
while reaching for the sky...
fill your heart with love
and gratitude for the trees that grace
our lives...
