The Sacred Tree

And I wake as from bathing in a spring
That is your being,
Having been caressed by you
And knowing,
Wider and Wider
Who you are
And what our life.
Each waking is
Another branch of
That great tree you are
Growing ever more beautiful
As I touch your flowers
And know the scent
Of your blossoming.
And I,
Climb to one
Of your branches
To rest within
The folds of you.
Rest and give my very breath
To all your leaves.
When I die,
Place me at your roots
And take me
To be your very body.
What sweet wonder is that?

In my dream I was floating and found myself staring at a huge tree. It had a thick trunk and roots and a wide and far reaching top with many branches. I believe there were leaves as well, but I was too busy staring at the big swirl of so many bright bright colors coming out of the hollow in the tree trunk. I was just in awe of the beautiful sight and I was a little afraid because I didn’t know what was going on, but at the same time I was at peace and started smiling. I also felt a little warm. The colors coming out of the tree trunk were so bright they lit up up the dark background almost giving it a brownish hue, felt like I was in space but not really. I would really appreciate your interpretation of this dream. I’m not sure what to think of it. Thank you!

In this dream I was in awe of the beauty of the green leaved trees that I and travelling companions were walking under -they filled me with joy — In the near distance I was happy to see a baboa tree in all its glory — I would love to have your interpretation of this tree dream — i also saw myself walking inside a structure which was all beautiful raw grains just like being inside a tree. Thanks to you
