I’ve just discoverred Tagore, Asia’s first winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Just imagine – he wrote his first poem when he was only eight!

(I found this photo of oaks in Louisiana, USA via Stumbleupon, so unfortunately, don’t know who took it.)


BE still,

my heart,

these great trees are prayers.

Tagore (from his poem Stray Birds)

  1. Is that a photo or a painting. Its beautiful.

    “these great trees are prayers.” I could write everyday for a year and not come up with a turn of phrase that incredibly beautiful and evocative.


  2. My “roots” are in Lousiana (no pun intended) and I can say from first hand experience …those three lines encapsulate this setting perfectly.


  3. I love trees and this is my absolute favorite! I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana and have spent many of my childhood days climbing these amazing oak trees in Audubon Park near Story Land.
    This photo was taken at Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA. 😉
