What if you could tap into the age-old knowledge of the trees? What if you could sit beneath their leaf covered branches and listen to their stories? What tales might you hear?
In a quest to answer these questions the author took various medical, mythical, and mystical tree lore, combined it with information about their historical and current uses, mixed in scientific facts about our arboreal friends and then let it all mingle in her subconscious. The result is a collection of short stories, poems, and essays inspired by the trees of the Ancient Irish Ogham (o-um) Alphabet. Some are uplifting. Some are dramatic. Some are humorous. All tap into the spirit and symbolism of the trees that inspired them.
