The IRON Book of Tree Poetry reads like a lovely mixed woodland. You'll find new voices springing up alongside established poets, such as Debjani Chatterjee, Linda France, Kate Fox, Pippa Little, Jacob Polley and many more...
I overdid it this winter. Hunkered down. Feasted. Forgot to move.
A whiff of spring and I’m waking up. My body craves soup, my heart, simple nourishment. No doorstep sandwiches or difficult novels for me. I’m writing haiku and reading slim books by spiritual masters.
Stillness Speaks by Eckhart Tolle is such a book. It is wholesome and easy to digest. Short meditations, arranged by theme, carry you effortlessly into wordless calm.
No need to read it from cover to cover. It’s a book to dip into. How delightful. I leave you with a quote:
“The present moment is as it is. Always. Can you let it be?”
(Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks)
