the river trees


because they receive so much
from the water

they pour their light
back in

Wonderful way of seeing what we see each moment. We (I) should encourage our minds and hearts to think like this always!

Made me think of Kahlo's "What the Water Gave Me" - then Pascale Petit's poetry of the same name, after Kahlo.

Thank you for giving me a lovely contemplative moment :)
