Tomb and Tree

Posted by
Nitin (Mayenne, France) on 24 June 2013 in Plant & Nature.

“A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fiber thrilling like harp strings, while incense is ever flowing from the balsam bells and leaves. No wonder the hills and groves were God's first temples, and the more they are cut down and hewn into cathedrals and churches, the farther off and dimmer seems the Lord himself.”

Beautiful shot, interesting words it's true people used to worship in the high places thus sometimes the tall spires and bell towers but those never bring men as close to God as a personal relationship.
