Chapter 3Day 24
The 4th of Oct.
It had just finished raining. Once again Kes was on an important errand, followed by her ever-faithful cat and carrying an umbrella that wasn't her own. It actually belonged to a bad-tempered "bird girl" whom she accidentally run into earlier while fleeing a strange goblin-like creature. It was all this "goblin's fault, he had landed on her umbrella causing her to run in terror. Later, he translated the angry twitter speech of the girl, explaining to Kes that since she ruined the birthday cake that was meant for the girl's mother, payment must be made. Upon hearing that Kes had no money to pay, the "bird girl" accused her of being a thief. Angered by this ou
Arise, great forest...Little rain’s on the leaves of the wood mindArise, great forest... by HopeSquirr
And no shadows or signs of the winds;
That’s the night which for me is too quiet
So there will be the falling of dreams.
There’s the beautiful elk with large antlers,
He is showing himself between trees,
He is tall and well-built as all masters
And his glory blackbirds’ chorus sings.
But the rain unexpectedly finishes
As the elk’s order flies to the sky.
The storm-cloud suddenly disappears
And the king becomes found by moon light.
And saiga, he is consul, the truest,
Wood king’s retinue’s near oak with him:
Beings of steppe, underground and forest
Sovereign of the wood needs to see.
Fallow-deer, the lad, youngest herald
Very bad news solemnly proclaims:
“Human spawns has become just transgressors
In great sanctuary of forest lands.
Humans murder all beasts which they notice,
Humans leave everywhere their dust”.
And it’s heard cry of wood squirrels’ chorus:
“Many trees ju
The Young Tree Tale.The Young Tree Tale. by dogyjoe
Before the poem I would like to share a personal quote
"Humanity doesn't own the Planet. The Planet owns Humanity. "
I was born by mistake,
Children playing and throwing seeds,
And one of them was blessed for me.
I had a hard time growing,
But the children were helping,
Giving me love, attention and carrying.
I grew to be a big, strong tree,
A peach tree full of fruits of amazing beauty,
But this changed quickly.
The love which I got,
Was only from children, not from the monsters,
Which wanted to see me falling and suffering.
They asked, they wanted me to fall,
But I showed them that only Nature brawl,
And the Monsters only growl.
But, as you know,
Nothing lasts forever,
Even my time has to come to an end.
So it came,
That I must fall.
The Monsters started happily to yell,
And I couldn't say to my children Farewell.
It is sad that Humanity arrived to this point,
Where they can't make a difference between Humility and Cruelty,
Also I have a questi
A Challenge! With Features and Premium MembershipsHello everyone!A Challenge! With Features and Premium Memberships by theperian
To those who celebrate it, a happy Thanksgiving. I was thinking about it last night, and I would like to give thanks to everyone here - all the wonderful artists, fabulous photographers and aspiring creators who have made these past few years great. But I also wanted to give thanks (and a bit of help) to this amazing world of ours. So, why not combine the two?
So, here's the challenge (and there are potentially nearly a thousand of you reading this, so we could make this something truly spectacular!)
Scientific consensus agrees that climate change is happening, mostly due to carbon. And even if you are among the few who prefer not to look at that, we still need oxygen and, as artists, we use paper all of the time. So, one way or another, we're all quite dependant on trees. (Besides, forest glades are fabulous places to come up with creative ideas.)
On average, we could completely negate our carbon footprint by planting 20 trees per year. Even one would be a fanta

The Tree of Good IntentionsLeafless, bleached, towering; it is the only shadow for miles and miles; unwavering and fragmented.The Tree of Good Intentions by BluestWaves
When the afternoon sinks, the white tree becomes aflame with sundown.
It might have been dreaming of the time when it had leaves, but it was long ago and the desert has not been any milder since then; but before, the people came to crown it with flowers. They watered it every day at dawn and sang sweet songs about its roots, fabled to sink deep into the core of the world. And the children climbed the branches and talked to it, and told it it was those branches where good intentions nested.
But before, that was before. Then the sky started to change and the nomads chased after it, and when its time had to come, the tree died.
This sunset spreads through its ancient veins a ghost warmth it knows from another thousand ancient sunsets, but there is a vibration that reaches from the sand and tells, something is about to happen that has not happened since countless moons.
And it does, and soon
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:

WE ARE A GROUP FOCUSED ON TREES IN TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL ART. For tree photography, go to our sister group
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:
Traditional art - for traditional drawings and paintings
Digital art - for digital drawings and paintings
Literature - for poems and stories featuring trees
Crafts and Design - sculpture, body art, jewelery, bead work and everything handmade, also tattoo and t-shirt design
Fractal Trees - made with fractal programmes
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.
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
I hope you'll have a nice time in the group! If you have any questions, send a note to the group, or to me,

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and
