Tell Me TreeTell me treeTell Me Tree by ~LoveTheTrees17
The story of me
That I cannot tell
For yours is a story of us and we
From the time of earth and water
To rock and sea
To know the story of you
You must know the story of me
Then tell me tree
The story of you
Story of me? That I cannot do
For mine is a story of time
Not but a seed
A speck in life’s eyes
Stretching leaf by leaf
To the reflective blue skies
Tell me tree
The story of the sun
Of the sun? Well there’s more than one
The star you see above your head
Is a swivel of memories of living and dead
Bursting out light and heat
Blessing us all with food to eat
Tell me tree
The story of earth
I was wondering when you would mention earth
The mother of all
The giver of birth
The candle upon which energy ignites
A polar being, always in days or nights
The world that we see most clear
That lets us eat her body
And drink her tears
That whispers to the moon and laughs with the sun
The only steadiness among beings constantly on the run
Tell me tree
The story of man
RageThat was the limit. He had made up his mind and now he awaited the next victim.Rage by ~Jac888
Three very strong men had interfered with his lonely yet peaceful life and had given him quite a pain. And that was when he decided to react. And it caught them unawares. The first blow shattered the skull of the youngest (and possibly the strongest) of the three. It echoed through the hillside like a gun shot. The puzzled look on the faces of the other two nearly bought a smile to him even in agony.
They rushed to the lifeless body of their comrade but he had other ideas. The second one was lifted from the ground and smashed on to a nearby rock.
"A broken thing. Pity. But no remorse. May be I should ease his pain." He was lifted up and smashed again. "This time dead for sure." The wound on his right hurt in the process. Those sharp piercing rotor blades had left a deep cut on his right.
"No. This is not the time for pain." ... He swayed regally to the third person.

Spooky Tree.Spooky Tree. by ~dogyjoe
Once upon a time,
In a land forgotten by space and time,
Lived a Tree filled with leaves.
A little Tree it was,
Raised in darkness,
All alone and filled with sadness.
As it grew,
Something happened, something new,
Creatures came, they started to bloom.
The Tree got angry,
The branches turned scary,
The leaves were hungry.
The creatures saw the Tree,
They wanted it to fall deep,
The Tree did not agree.
The creatures tried to slash and cut,
With no luck,
The Tree started to struck.
It harmed the people’s soul,
It harmed the ground's soil,
Leaving nothing, but turmoil.
Here my story ends,
This is not a happy end,
But a happy tale, gone bad.
The Tree's NameThe Tree's Name by *Malintra-Shadowmoon
The tree grew in the midst of the Old Forest.
A lot of people went for a walk in this forest. But mostly they did not notice the tree. It stood a little off the road. There it had its place where it had grown naturally.
The tree was still young, but already very strong. Its roots were deeply anchored in Mother Earth. It had strong branches and many twigs where birds liked to nest. The birds were its friends. They felt well there because of the tranquillity and the strength of the tree. Its leaves became dark-red in autumn and were wonderfully veined.
The tree had a dream. It wanted to know its name.
During one long dark and cold winter it dreamt of having a name and being called by it. That would produce a very special magic and it would find its destiny.
One beautiful evening the air was clear and pure. It was summer and the air was comfortable warm and starlit. Even here at the remote place in the Old Forest where the young tree grew penetrated the starlight and the war

The world a blur to most
Most see a tree as a tree
The day you actually see
When the world is not the same world
A tree is no longer a tree
A tree is something that bears fruit
A tree is something beautiful
Even in the harshest winds
A tree stands its ground
A tree with leaves of majestic green
No longer just a tree
But a tree that is a work of art
That is the day you see the world
That is the day the world comes into focus
That is the day you truly see the tree

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.

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
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 salts out of the earth and lift them up to the leaves, sometimes over 400 ft above. By means of photosynthesis the leaves combine the water and salts with carbon dioxide from the air to produce the nutrients which feed the tree. In this process, as well as wood, trees create many chemicals, seeds and fruit of great utility to man. Trees also remove carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, from
JobSwitchEveryday on reaching the office ask yourself secretly "Why am I here?"
You'll hear some interesting answers in your head --- "Of course! I've to earn a living" --- "Obviously to fulfill my dreams" --- "Well, to see her[him] everyday" et cetera
One day you'll hear "Sigh ... I've no idea" and that would be the right day to start looking for another job.
Well WisherOne of the best moments in life would be when you realize that someone had been praying for you all along. The moment-of-truth generates an unexplainable feeling within the then connected minds.
Of course it is a happy feeling!
