Theme: The dreaming tree.  We wrote Dreams for the Trees.

Here are our dreams:

 

Dreams for the Trees

That they may grow tall, breathing in clean air, 

gentle rain

brilliant sun.

To be untouched by machine

& to be appreciated by human hands and human hearts.

And always,

To be our grounding & our inspiration.

Written by B. Myrick, 7/19/14

 

DREAMS for the TREES

-that they be recognized as 

SACRED

-that they not be cut down 

Indiscriminately 

-that our children and grandchildren be taught well

to treasure and preserve the trees

-that tree climbing and sitting in not be lost

-that all pests and people that kill trees be controlled and/or eliminated.

Written by M. Zubrzycki, 7/19/14

 

Dreams for the Trees

Drums as voice of Trees

giving the drum vibration/voice experience to environmentally focus activist / groups for the visceral experience of the web or interconnection,

stand in...

dance in...

be in...

live from...

the place of the flow of gratitude to all life - Earth & Skies,

for the love of future generations and future generations of drummers

Written by D. Cuneo, 7/19/14

 

Dreams for the Trees

That all people stay in touch,

know why or how you, beautiful trees,

are connected to them...

to help us breath - our breath.
