Our beautiful, life-giving trees.

Today we sing for our trees.

I’m very grateful to a recent post over on Dreamwalker’s SanctuarySing for the Trees. This is how the post opens.

My Earth Day Painting, in tribute to our Earth Mother and Nature

You can find out more about Singing for our Trees Here and why its important to honour our sacred trees which are fast disappearing from our Earth.

In celebration of connecting with Gaia, our Earth Mother, I spent the weekend Painting. I wanted something Light, bright and showing the love.. Hence all the hearts and flowers.

But can you spot a Fairy two little elves and a new born, mouse and pot of gold in there?

That link in Sue’s second paragraph goes across to Songkeeper.net where one reads:

Earth Day – Sing for the Trees
April 22, 2015

Noon, wherever you are on the planet

Sing for the Trees You Love

A Single Idea Planted With Hope

In January 2010 a single idea was planted on the fertile ground of Facebook. It was a simple call: Create your own Woodstock. On Earth Day, April 22, 2010 sing to your favorite tree.

The Response

Since then over 8,000 people from 45 countries and 48 U.S. States have sung to trees

The Need

Every day a rain forest the size of Central Park is destroyed.

Every year a rain forest area larger than England is cut down.

15% of deforestation is caused by cutting down trees for toilet paper.

Why Sing?

The Civil Rights Movement, Apartheid and more recently Pete Seeger’s Ship of Hope to clean the Hudson River have used song to create awareness and galvanize action.

Singing:

  • Helps create community
  • Gives us a way to have a voice in saving what we love
  • Is an offering of our life force and spirit
  • Connects us to ancient traditions
  • Nourishes trees by giving them carbon dioxide
  • Is part of the joy of being human
  • Helps us relax and tune into nature and to each other
  • Reminds us we are part of the chorus of life

What more can I add other than offer some pictures of the trees here at home.

Yes, we will sing for the trees today, and not just today!

And there is one more thing I can offer; a song.

    1. You are more than welcome, Sue. It struck me when out with the dogs an hour ago that I should also have taken some pictures of the very young trees around the property. Maybe another time.
