“For Me, Trees Have Always Been The Most Penetrating Preachers.” | Prompt #13

“A tree with strong roots, laugh at storms.” You may try to shake front the outside, but do you actually have a control for what’s going inside this heart?

Well, this can be taught by nothing but trees. I don’t know for what weird reasons I’ve always found trees as my best companion. There are many instances where I see myself more comfortable with trees than people around me.

Everyone takes their time for the survival to be dependent on something. For me, it’s always trees. I’ve written multiple things on my blog for my love but it always makes me delighted to keep on appreciating for its affection teaches me a lot.

I’m so mean for my trees that I used to lie at my workplace that I have an urgent work to do and need a holiday/half-day from work, and what would I do in that time? I’d go to one of mg favorite parts, surrounded by huge trees. I’d read, write, talk with them, stare at its beauty, click pictures of them and what not.

If you want to experience that, read that blog post here- Trees.

I’m glad that for tonight’s prompt number 11, For Me, Trees Have Always Been The Most Penetrating Preachers, I can share my experience. Let’s go for it.

I had a dream in which I was planting a pretty rose tree,
Taking care of her, by day and by night.
Unaware of my roses, which turned away from me,
But I was in love with its thorns too that
Even the botheration gave me delight.

I ask myself often, when will you be strong like a living tree, Sumit?
Getting pale, budding, falling down, but still wearing green.
Stick to the roots, doesn’t get affected
with the air,
It has so much to teach and a lot to share.

Here, I think, the tree is a father
Which is taking care of its little leaves
Gives hope by its root, and spreads the crown
It may fall for a while, but never let it down.

In life, it taught me to be calm
And wait until you get your turn,
There’s a lot needs to observe,
And get deeper with time to learn.

Your time will speak for you
And make you an iron wood,
Just remember to be anything
With anyone, but never be rude.

Now go back to your dream to keep,
Let your roots be stronger, and let them sleep.

  1. This is soooo inspirational. Building your roots strong makes a healthy and long lasting tree. Roots are important. Shallow roots makes the tree fall even with slight wind.

    Wonderful expression of the prompt!

    1. Honestly speaking, your comments are most awaited ever since I’ve started this NaPoWriMo.

      I’m happy to find you found it inspiring too. I don’t know why but I feel really bad when I see trees are being cut these days. I really feel deep for them.

      It teaches us so much more. Thank you for loving it so much, Nawazish.

      1. Your posts are really good. They deserve all the praises.

        Trees are essential part of our ecosystem. They are the only source oxygen with everything containing carbon dioxide. It’s a living thing to say the least. As humans, we are destroying the essence of natural beauty and damaging natures equilibrium. That’s the scientific part.

        For the literary aspect, the use of co2 and making it o2 to me is like converting all the negative energy that we get from our surroundings into something positive and giving our best. Using what is waste to make it our strength

    1. And undoubtedly, your comment was waiting too.

      I’m obliged to read that the initial lines captivated your attention that you ended up making a decision. I’m really happy.

      No doubt, we can learn from anything and anyone only if we shift our focus on the learning part. Trees are my companion.


      1. I see! I’ve always liked myself more as a blogger than to be called as a writer, or AUTHOR. That’s pathetic by the way. In our country, every debut book is published by a best seller AUTHOR only.

  2. I remember one thing that you shared with me someday, you said you wanna be like a tree, even if it sheds all its leaves in autumn, it still stands tall and waits for spring. And you told me, you wanna be like a tree, that stands tall even if there are difficulties, even when you think you’re left with nothing.
    I know your love for trees and this post justified it all.
    Good one!

    1. I’m sure while remembering it you can picture a nude but a strong gorgeous tree left with no leaves.

      The moment I get over there, at that point, when nothing matters even after all the odds, and if I’m happy like that. That would be the end of sorrow and worldly desires.

  3. How lovely, Sumit,
    for me, the last two stanzas felt relatable staying calm until it’s your turn and not getting bitter because things are not going well for you.
    Also, how conveniently have you bought the beauty of a family with a tree, we can get tired but we can never lose as long as we are connected to our roots, no storm can wither us away.
    How two different context are bought together, merging somewhere.
    Loved it ❤

    1. One of the major reasons for choosing tree over anything is because it teaches us a lot of things. Things which we cannot even imagine it can teach us.

      Thank you for showing your best parts, Anamika.


  4. I too connect with the trees, adore them with all my senses.

    The smooth and calming movement of leaves with soft breeze, or the fluttering with wind, the diversity in colors, rich representation of wilderness, how they differ with altitudes. Sometimes i feel like even they respond back to me, but that’s just my interpretation. Sight of trees make me energized and humbled at the same time.

    1. You’re so much connected to trees. I thought I was the one who’s crazy over them. But I was so wrong.

      They surely respond to those who willingly talk with them.

      Moreover, they teach us a lot. A lot of things in life.

      1. Yes, for sure. See how it’s only nature that has been always around us.

        Do you remember any real presence that has been with you each and every second of your life?
        But see wherever you’ve stayed in your life, be it Indore or Mumbai or wherever, the sky is the same, the pattern of rain is the same, the clouds are still there, sun will set and rise again anywhere, the moons and stars will be there for night, storms and breezes will be there, no matter what.

        And they will be there, forever.

      2. I am just blown away with the way you think, Shree. What are you?

        It seems as if you’re in a deep love with nature (I can clearly say this because when you followed me on Twitter, I did check your likes to see what excites you, and other than nature, humanity, and life I could not find anything else)

        I absolutely agree with you for how they’re important and there for us in all the seasons without a reason. People may come, people may go, but what always remains is the Nature.

      3. I’m trying to bring together my all versions there at twitter. Not the deep, you know people there don’t appreciate that at all. But still, both of my inside and outside.
