the sweetest nectar

with the wind at my back
I relax

and
sit inside all the glory before me

the blooming flowers
and the resplendent arches on the trees
as they hang with the most delicious fruit seen

they drip with the sweetest nectar
a life in transience and shelter

from the pain
deep inside the veins trees

for it is me
I see

living inside the contexts beneath
the washed out scene

delivering to us all
the gift of humanity

    Jeff this is so very beautifully written. If we could see from the perspective of the wise tree. How we hurt and kill one another, such a sad tale and yet forever hope. Gorgeous! ❤️

  3. Beautiful. I felt it speak to me in the most clear adage, that success comes after struggles as so are flowers borne out of rain and sunshine. And when success comes, it’s beauty to the soul and smiles to the face.

    Just amazing how you looked at the beauty of glory through the eyes of this beautiful painting of the tree.
    The ways of the veins and the pains it has to endure to bring forth such glory and so we can bask in its beauty in the same way we bask in the beauty of your work, a labour of love.
    Congratulations Jeff♥♥
    You done it
    And your veins will burn
    And you will do it again
