In the darkness I can sometimes hear the trees speaking to each other. The depths of the sky swirl together, and envelope the tips of the tree branches. The deep calling to the deep. To me, there is a wisdom in this, despite its lack of reality. But then, if we listen with our hearts, we can hear the wisdom of God. This feels right.
