THE SINGING TREE

.

.

The Gypsy introduced me

to a true singing tree.

We were walking at the base of Spirit Mesa among the junipers which are scattered over a wide area of this high desert where the Chaco Canyon people lived long ago.  She stopped and asked if I heard it — if I heard the tree singing.  I must have stood open-mouthed, because I did hear it — a breathy hum.  The tree stands almost touching its twin, but some walking around told me that the song definitely comes from this tree, not the other.
.
I think I was too shocked at what I was hearing to do anything but look a question at her, and she said that she had a strong psychic impression that a long-ago shaman had spent a lot of time sitting in this spot — that he liked watching the sunset from there.  The idea is that that is the reason the tree sings.
.
I’ve already written of the exact spot which I felt was the home of a line of Spirit Mesa shamans, and here are some unexplained photos I took there: https://otherearsothertongues.wordpress.com/category/spirit-mesa-photos/

The old singing juniper is very close by.
.
I kept a lawn chair under that tree, and there I listened to its song and watched sunsets and celebrated quiet joy.
