Tree talk

The talking oak to the ancient spoke. But any tree will talk to me.-Mary Carolyn Davies

I have been thinking about how trees talk. I think that it’s probably not so much that that trees talk but some tuned in people can listen. Trees are nature’s perfect antennas. I mean just look at their shape a double ended antenna one end spread deep in the earth the other end spread into the sky.
I believe it's just a matter of tuning in to these antennas to hear just what you need to hear. What do you think ?

Why are there trees I never walk under but large and melodious thoughts descend upon me?- Walt Whitman, Song of the Open Road

My trees say "OUCH!" when my husband hits them with flying discs (frisbees). Most of the rest of the time they say "Look at me!" and this Summer during the historic drought they said "I'm thirsty."
