I feel so alive. so connected, so satisfied in my soul when I am in the crown of a coconut tree....

CLIMBING FOR COCONUTS

My tribute to the most life-giving tree known to humans...

 

I arm myself with my simple tools; sarong, sleeves and saw. I wrap my arms around you, I kiss your rough skin, I ask you for peace and protection and offer to release your weighty load. I ask you to give me the strength to trust you and trust myself. I ascend you, slowly and surely without hesitation. I refuse to let the adrenalin sneak in as I breathe into my own power. I know that you have got me and you won't bend under my load. I am the only thing that can go wrong. As I reach your head, I pull myself up in your arms and I am safe. The wind can blow but you only sway with it. As long as I hold you and place present steps, I will not fall.. I get to work cutting loose your fruits as they thud on the earth that holds your roots so strong. When I have lightened your load I take a moment to give thanks and realise the power of this moment, so full and so free. In full presence i find my feet back on your solid spine and I slowly descend u again. When my feet touch the ground I marvel at my earnings and I feel like the wealthiest woman on earth! I pack my precious cargo in my beautiful brown beast and start my 2000km trip south, powered by used fish and chip oil........

 

I love my life! I am proud of the choices I make and respect myself for living so deeply true to what I believe in!!!
