I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Welcome, tree lover! (and rules)

:icontwc-noplz::icontwc-no2plz::icontwc-plz3::icontwc-plz3::icontwc-plz4::icontwc-plz5::icontwc-plz6:

Trees have always been something more than just plants to the mankind. The worship of trees might be forgotten, but still the symbol of tree survives in our subconscious. Almost every nation has myths and legends about trees, placing the tree as the central axis of the world, or worshipping it as a dwelling place of gods or spirits, the giver of knowledge, connection between worlds or as ancestors of the tribe. And the fact that you are here proves that the love for trees survives until this day.


If you are interested in the role of trees in mythology, you can find more in this news article:
Magic TreesTrees have always been something more than just plants to the mankind. The worship of trees might be forgotten, but still the symbol of tree survives in our subconscious. Almost every nation has myths and legends about trees, placing the tree as the central axis of the world, or worshipping it as a dwelling place of gods or spirits, the giver of knowledge, connection between worlds or as ancestors of the tribe.   
In Norse mythology, a giant ash tree - Yggdrasil - represents "axis mundi", around which the 9 worlds (the world of people - Middle-earth, being one of them) are organized. A giant snake, Níðhöggr, gnaws at its roots, but they always grow anew.

The biblical Tree of Knowledge has even some similarities to Yggdrasil. The snake is present, also, an

FULL RULES WITH EXAMPLES:
Group rules!This blog will be updated regularly for new members. The basic rules are on the front page, but here they are with examples as well, because there is a grey are in some rules where a picture might get accepted or declined according to the personal opinion of the admin.
First of all:
:iconceltic8plz: WE ARE A GROUP FOCUSED ON TREES IN TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL ART. For tree photography, go to our sister group :icontreephotographers:
A tree or its part MUST be the main part of the picture, or at least one of its main parts, not just background.
Examples:
:iconyesbuttonplz: - the tree is clearly the main part of the picture
:iconyesbuttonplz: - trees are not the only focus of the picture, but they are still important in it.
:iconmaybebuttonplz: - the tree makes more of a background for the main object of the picture, but is still seen in detail. Depends on the level of detail and moo


WE ARE A GROUP FOCUSED ON TREES IN TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL ART. For tree photography, go to our sister group :icontreephotographers:
A tree or its part MUST be the main part of the picture, or at least one of its main parts.


Photography submissions to the gallery will be declined, but you can submit them to the group's favourites treelovers.deviantart.com/favo…

The submission limit is three works per day.

Our gallery folders are:
:icontreesplz: Traditional art - for traditional drawings and paintings
:icontreesplz: Digital art - for digital drawings and paintings
:icontreesplz: Literature - for poems and stories featuring trees
:icontreesplz: Crafts and Design - sculpture, body art, jewelery, bead work and everything handmade, also tattoo and t-shirt design
:icontreesplz: Fractal Trees - made with fractal programmes
:icontreesplz: Living monuments - is the only photography folder, but it's only for the photos of the most exceptional trees - biggest, oldest, with exceptional history... If the reason of submitting the photo into this folder is not obvious, it must be stated in the artist's comments. Please don't submit a photo of every bigger tree in your surroundings, the true living monuments are only a few, and collecting them is the sense of this folder.
:icontreesplz: Photomanipulation - must be easily discernable from a photo, not just a photo with some filters but more connected elements, and should be in the digital art-> photomanipulation cathegory

Winter tree by OlgaSternik Pretty AyameBehind marshy fields,
Near the oaks of a thousand years,
The ancient yews,
Where the whitethorn blooms.
Where the spirits unite at night
The beautiful Ayame lives.
In the yews dwell elves,
In the oaks live dryads,
Under rocks sit gnomes,
Nymphs guard the spring.
There in the woods, in the clearing
Ayame moves and dances.
Sometimes in full moon nights,
Ayame rides on a white deer
Through the forest thicket.
In the brown robe of the earth,
With waving green hair,
Ayame rides mute through the woods.
People know nothing about the motionless fern realms
Or about meadow groves, shone on by the silvery moon,
In the old wood
Where no paths exist,
Where the families of the oak trees
Aspire worthy at the heights.
In this green ocean,
Here in the moist soft moss,
In the cushions of heather.
The forehead crowned with ivy.
Blessed in the forest arms
The beautiful Ayame sleeps.
In the ancient spring
A pretty face is reflected,
Dreams in the inner of its own nature
Ayame:
The dream sleep of day,
The
Ancient Thing Place by Malintra-ShadowmoonZephyr II by cemeraldForever Joined Together by Malintra-Shadowmoon Fir-tree in the ForestOutside it is bitter cold,
Frozen I trudge through the forest.
Untouched, innocent, white -
A bare forest-aisle shines.
Once stood the child’s dream
As a green fir-tree
At the great white place.
This, now as a Christmas treasure –
I am missing badly.
Every year, quite solemn,
I went away on Christmas Eve,
Away from my home.
Hurried quickly to my tree
That was my Christmas dream for me.
Kindled a light -
There my prayer was made.
In the midst of the peaceful forest
I felt only seldom cold.
However, this time it is lacking.
Christmas Eve is empty now.
Sadly, I trot back,
Weeping for lost happiness.
Dear Christ child, tell me why
Are people so stupid?
They murder my fir-tree,
They kill my Christmas dream.

Sunny Winter Day - on the lake bank - oil by Oksana007Purple n blue by N3O85A Of Bark Of SapIf you press your ears to this ribcage and listen
You shall hear the rustle of the leaves
Eons have gathered in this nest of lone, wild sentience
Sap runs within these very veins
Beneath the pallid lids the forests echo of the past
Forget words for they mean as much as dust
Upon those breathless books of minds
Of beautiful distortions of equilibrium, emotions
Of Dryad's hair, Of Oaken bark, of morning dew, of frozen hopes
Made unto flesh beneath the sun flares yet again
Familiar fields, well treaded woods, only the trees, only the birds
Know of this soul, of its' stray path and winding roads
The willow branches bend caressing
Entangling their fine fingers in ash strands of hair
A sacred place where eyes of elements weave songs
A whisper more insatiable a promise than a tangible resort
