In The Language Of Trees by Louise Gallagher The language of trees lays buried deep within their roots digging into the earth stretching their arms in search of whispers of life within the cracks and crevices of time lying still beneath Mother Nature’s soiled covers. The language of trees is felt rising up through crenellated bark and rugged trunks standing tall against the wind hurling obscenities at their unwillingness to give up ground to its demands. The language of trees is heard deep within the sibilant whispers of its leaves telling stories to the birds and bees and scampering squirrels who clamber along its branches in search of place to hide through winter’s storms. The language of trees is written everywhere. We must listen before it’s too late to hear their roots calling us to help them stay grounded.
