Broken down...



Über Nacht war ein schwerer Sturm.
Und als ich heute hinausging, etwas Frischluft zu bekommen,
 fand ich auf meinem Weg diesen abgebrochenen Ast mit den Misteln.
Ich hatte keine Kamera dabei und so nahm ich ihn mit nach Haus.
Da liegt sie nun am Boden, diese Zauberpflanze, Bewohnerin von Luft und Licht.
Giftig ist sie, aber eine Heilpflanze auch.
Vielleicht ist es kein Zufall, vielleicht hat sie mich gerade gesucht -
Nein, ich werde natürlich jetzt keine Arzenei brauen, ich bin keine Pharmazeutin...
Aber Zwiesprache halten kann ich mit ihr.
Jetzt, wo sie gebrochen ist und in meiner Ebene angekommen.


Over night was a terrible storm.
And when I went out today to get some fresh air,
 I found these broken branch on my way with the mistletoe.
I had no camera there so I took it home.
Now it is at the bottom, this magical plant, a resident of air and light.
Toxic she is, but also a medicinal plant.
Perhaps it is no coincidence, maybe it just searched for me -
No, of course I will now not a medicine brew, I am not a pharmacist ...
But I can commune with her.
Now when it is broken and came down to my level.

  4. Photos 5.6.8 and 9 look like people with their arms raised up, maybe in prayer. Perhaps you can carry this image with you this week, liebe Mascha.

  6. When I first read that title, Broken Down, I feared it was in reference to yourself. I am so glad it is not, but I do understand the sadness of a storm battered garden and a broken treasure. You have captured its beauty in these photos. I always thought mistletoe was a highly invasive plant. Obviously you do not have the problem with it and it sure is beautiful! xo

  9. Hübsch ist sie aber leider lebt sie nicht nur von Licht und Luft sondern is parasitisch auf anderen Pflanzen, besonders wenn sie gestresst sind. Mistel kann große Bäume umbringen.

    Mascha, all blessings for your health, first of all. Your photos are beautifully arranged as always - I love how you tell the story of your subject.

    The Mistletoe is a parasitic plant and the host tree (whether it is pine, or apple or such) affects its inner properties, thus any medicinal preparation. There are a number of commercial brands available, depending on the disorder being addressed. Its use can be controversial. (I am a Homoeopathic physician and have only prescribed Viscum Album once, in a case of hypertension, with moderate success). If this type of therapy interests you, I strongly recommend you consult with a qualified physician of ancillary medicines (Germany is the home of Homoeopathy after all!!!) and that it ought to be in joint agreement with any treatment devised by your current physician/s. If nothing else, you could seek supportive prescription for the emotional aspect of your state at the moment and for that I would suggest Bach Flower Essences. This listing may help you... with all love and prayer for your recovery. YAM xx

    1. Thank you. Of course, I have only contacted the mistletoe by looking and meditation- she's so beautiful (and I hope, I not need a medicine against cancer... for such the mistletoe is used too, I'm interesting in such things too, as a laiman).
      To make medicine, they must cut it from the trees without contact to the earth, have once reading.
      That every kind of tree affect its inner properties, I haven't known before. Very interesting issue!
      I will more read about it.

  14. Hello Mascha! What a beautiful tree! It is certainly sad it broke, but you captured its beauty perfectly. Thinking of you as you go to the hospital - you will be in my prayers. Hugs to you!

  15. The broken branch does seem so sad. We have a lot of wild wind in my peninsula world and I still feel sad when I see branches strewn round the garden. Wishing you inner strength in your days ahead.

  19. Liebe Mascha,
    schön, dass Du durch den Sturm mal so dicht dran gekommen bist. Ich kann diese Gebilde immer nur hoch oben in den Bäumen bewundern. Und es ist lange her, dass wir mal einen Mistelzweig zu Weihnachten im Haus hatten.
    Liebe Grüße

  24. Wunderbare Fotos von diesem Zaubergewächs! Ich hab nach dem Sturm auch ein paar kleinere Mistelzweige im Wald gefunden und mit nach Haus genommen. Auf manchen deiner unteren Fotos (z. B. das 6. von unten) sehen die Mistelblätter aus wie Flügel von Engeln mit leuchtend goldenen Köpfen, wunderschön............. Lieben Gruß Ghislana
