The fourth single Mother Tree is in part a tribute to Norine's dear mother who passed away last year during the writing of the album. The song also pays homage to the work of Dr. Suzanne Simard in discovering that trees interact with each other underground and form a kinship. Seedlings depend on these mother trees for survival in stressful conditions. Mother trees are the old ancient ones and keeping them intact helps regeneration and conserve carbon storage ultimately keeping the planet alive.

Stands before me

Earth to sky ascending
Every day

Hemlocks arch before me
Heaven’s scape

Leaves that quiver shaking
Lead the way

We are drops in the ocean
Mother may
I see how you open

Heart bouquets
Mother tree you have spoken
Silk conveys

Gentle songs they are lurking

Mother hub you share
Your light and sweets

Threads to roots
You’re pumping under feet

Mother warns us ever to beware

No returning when there’s no one there

Will they see this

Our children after us

Will they hear her feel the mother’s clutch
Spells of magic with her healing touch
