Please post your inspirations, experience, poetry, artwork, photography, etc. on the HAZEL!

The wise old Hazel,
In a woodland, deep and cool,
Where the sacred salmon dwell,
Eating nuts from Segais’ pool.

The hazel nuts on Halloween,
Foretells our future year.
Cast on the grate upon the e’en,
The veils do part, and we can peer.

Bringing Wisdom of the Ages,
Wood of the Diviner’s rod,
Favorite staff of Druid Sages,
Tree whom the poets laud.
