A quiet mind is all we need. All else happens rightly, once the mind is still.

Leafy Wind Songs

When the mind is quiet
we might notice that trees have unique voices.

Those with soft, thin leaves whisper
in a tossing wind,
while those with thick, sturdy, or crisp leaves can make themselves heard
with the gentlest of zephyrs.

You might feel trees' speech though leaf language is wordless,
and when occasionally the musings seem directed toward one's self - 
how lovely that is.

That which carries and understands my communications
also carries and understands leafy wind-songs
so, we know one another even without comprehending.

I once heard a large stand of old growth trees
share their ancient wisdom in the rush of an oncoming storm,
the hearing of it is ever with me.
