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 warmth of summer.
Suddenly a crack in the underbrush could be heard. The sleeping birds woke up and took wing in fright.
But there was no reason to be worried. It was me who stood in front of the tree all of a sudden and looked at it in admiration.
The tree felt great joy and looked at me. It started to enter into communication with me by its own way.
"Have you come to give me a name?"
"I will give you YOUR name, not any name", I replied.
"Oh, yes, I am already very anxious for I have been waiting for you a long time."
"I have followed the call of my heart and thus I have found you here. Your name is LOVE", I said.
"Love ", answered the tree and let this word took effect on its senses for a while. "Yes, that is MY name LOVE. You are right, my friend."
I tenderly kissed one of its leaves and embraced its stem. But the tree was so happy like never before in its life.
This is very beautiful... and also it's theme is really close to me because I love trees, they give me something, a feeling or more that nothing else in the world can... and without trees around me I feel a strong homesick. Thank you for sharing this
Thank you very much. So our souls might be probably from the same place? From the same kind, the same kin? As I am including some genetic features of my kin even in this life, I feel the urge a bit stronger by not being able to live in houses completely. When in a house, I miss the "air", the care, the living things around me. It is like someone putting both hands to my throat and throttle me. So, usually I work in a house (no other option left) and after work I hurry either for some wooden place or just behind my house where is my little wood (I call it, my oaken tree, my creek, my enchanted portal - everything is there) and I am waiting for the night to come. For my hobbies and PC and sleeping I can do outdoors or on the balcony. It is so beautiful lying on the balcony watching the stars
It really gives me a good feeling that are others who feel the same I do... I also wish to be always outside, even dreaming about a house in the woods where I could live forever... I miss something, something that I couldn't find yet, couldn't even realize what it really is... but I feel that I miss something that I must find in this lifetime. Now I am living in a flat so there are not so many chances to spend my time in nature or sitting under a tree where I could be filled of that great energy of nature which can be found only there. In parks I always spend a lot of time, but cars and people are always bothering... and no nearby woods or forest there... I just can say that take your chances and spend as much time in your little woods as possible because I can really understand your feelings about nature and trees...
