Trees & Forest musical leaves churning, turning and ferning.

Oh deer Bear,  this has been such a mind bender for picking music related to trees and forests. Once you get going with this theme you may as well be lost without a compass or sight of the stars at night to navigate by. There are so many wonderful tunes and images everywhere to enjoy. I got so ‘lost’ just enjoying The World Rainforest Festival scene that I forgot  my goal here for a time. LOL.  But seriously, folks, it’s damn clear that many people really do love the natural world and find all sorts of ways of expressing and sharing it.  I don’t understand how the big exploitative corporations get away with any of the destructive things they do at will with so many nature lovers everywhere to stop them. Perhaps it’s just a matter of uniting everyone and directing our attention on all the problems full force in order to create positive change for every living thing’s benefit? Mayhap.

Everyone is invited to share their forest and trees music and images here and over at bearspawprint where there are more selections–which I have NOT peaked at yet–I swear I’ve not!  If you decide to create your own post on this theme, please leave a link here or with bear to it! Let’s explore the interconnectedness of all things gleefully at will!

Okay, this will be familiar to those of you following the Breakfast Specials. I just had to include it for those not reading along who may have missed it. There’s just something about this collaborative musical effort by the Forest Elves that I can’t shake. So once again hear the Forest Elves original song, Cry of the Forest.

Katyn Forest Knows, O Yes, She Does

 Katyn Forest Knows, O Yes, She Does

 one bullet each

390 one night

did the trees weep

shudder, cringe, flinch

year rings holding knowledge

still men hold close in secret keeps

thereafter

250 single bullets

shot after shot methodically delivered

nothing random night to night

light no chance plays

did the night birds sing

warnings prayers

mourning dawns

250 trigger pulls

no sharing, one per each uniform head

no trip wires

no mines

hand held small gun

execution after identification

leading minds need dying

250 uniformed

Poles of whom thou shall not speak

1940 in Katyn Forest 22,000 lying

know you no you know

NKVD drains brains blood

counting seventy years denying

genocide claims no one owns

but

Katyn Forest knows all

o yes she does

listen close

songs

dying roots embraced

From Wikipedia  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyn_massacre

According to a report from 19 November 1939, the NKVD had about 40,000 Polish POWs: about 8,000–8,500 officers and warrant officers, 6,000–6,500 police officers and 25,000 soldiers and NCOs who were still being held as POWs.[1][13][22] In December, a wave of arrests took into custody some Polish officers who were not yet imprisoned, Ivan Serov reported to Lavrentiy Beria on 3 December that “in all, 1,057 former officers of the Polish Army had been arrested”.[10] The 25,000 soldiers and non-commissioned officers were assigned to forced labors (road construction, heavy metallurgy).[10]

Once at the camps, from October 1939 to February 1940, the Poles were subjected to lengthy interrogations and constant political agitation by NKVD officers such as Vasily Zarubin. The prisoners assumed that they would be released soon, but the interviews were in effect a selection process to determine who would live and who would die.[23][24] According to NKVD reports, if the prisoners could not be induced to adopt a pro-Soviet attitude, they were declared “hardened and uncompromising enemies of Soviet authority”.[23]

On 5 March 1940, pursuant to a note to Joseph Stalin from Beria, four members of the Soviet Politburo – Stalin, Vyacheslav Molotov, Kliment Voroshilov, and Anastas Mikoyan – signed an order to execute 25,700 Polish “nationalists and counterrevolutionaries” kept at camps and prisons in occupied western Ukraine and Belarus.[25][c] The reason for the massacre, according to historian Gerhard Weinberg, was that Stalin wanted to deprive a potential future Polish military of a large portion of its talent:

“It has been suggested that the motive for this terrible step [the Katyn massacre] was to reassure the Germans as to the reality of Soviet anti-Polish policy. This explanation is completely unconvincing in view of the care with which the Soviet regime kept the massacre secret from the very German government it was supposed to impress…. A more likely explanation is that… [the massacre] should be seen as looking forward to a future in which there might again be a Poland on the Soviet Union’s western border. Since he intended to keep the eastern portion of the country in any case, Stalin could be certain that any revived Poland would be unfriendly. Under those circumstances, depriving it of a large proportion of its military and technical elite would make it weaker”.[26]

In addition, Soviets realized that the prisoners constituted a large body of trained and motivated Poles who would not accept a Fourth Partition of Poland.[1]

Save the Awa’ People. When: Dec. 10 — Where: San Francisco — Who: Survival International and Us — Why: Extinction is Forever

Detect a “theme” developing here in my blogcasa in regard to December 10, 2012? What were you expecting– Maya Calendar World Ends fear mongering? Hmm, maybe the world — as we know it– will undergo an important change. Is it possible some Big Oil CEOs will decide to clean up their toxic messes around the globe? Could all military conflicts suddenly come to standstill? Maybe a fracking operation will send an underground fault line into motion that will divide a continent? Perhaps China will end its occupation of Tibet? A natural disaster could strike the Tar Sands operation in Canada? Monsanto will give up its quest for world domination via the food supply?  I suspect blue and pink piggies will sprout wings and fly first. Then again, something seems to be in the air lately . . . .     It’s possible to save the Awa’ people and their forest. All that’s required is the will to do so.

growling from the shadows

Ever been walking along minding your own business and get the feeling of being watched by some being hiding in the shadows? Hmm? Torn by curiosity to have a good look and by better judgement telling you to move along which do you do? Stride directly into the darkest part of the gloom or walk spritely on past without making eye contact with the unsettling observer?

Or, have you ever cooled your red-hot heels in the relief offered in the dark side of the sun and stood silently watching the people flow by as if on one of those moving sidewalks some airports provide for weary feet of fretful travellers?

Ever wonder what life is like inside a primeval forest? Is the human constructed environment a shallow shadow of food chain reality?

Dark cheers to all. Replies and responses are forthcoming.

Question: Anyone out there in the cyberswamp live near  or in a forest?

Guess what, there are bison in Poland–and there have been for thousands of years. Yeah, American Indians don’t have a monopoly on buffalo–or their preservation.  Now that’s a cheery thought. Or is it?
