I missed some of the past Thursday Challenges. Too much happening with the unruly heart and devious mind for me to concentrate on writing and blogging.
The theme this time is “TREES” (Saplings, Gnarly Trees, Snow Covered, Bonsai, Dead Tree, Shade Tree,…)
To me trees are Earth’s endless efforts to converse to the heavens above. I can spend hours watching them silently . They convey a very special message to us.
Reach for the sky but stay rooted to the ground.
Can’t resist sharing this link to my previous post on trees Have you ever questioned life from the eyes of a leafless tree
Two days back the winter rain returned and the trees stood in complete surrender to the thunderstorm.
Ones the clouds passed and the wet sun emerged it created a magical picture .
A new life is unfolding in the pot.. Soon the branches will shed the leaves and beautiful crimson, white and orange Bonneville flowers will fill the small plants. Something gives way for something more beautiful to emerge .That’s the law of nature. There is beauty in life and in death. Look at the leafless trees. They bare it all to the universe. No masks , nothing to hide.
And the leaves hang waiting to leave the branches and drift with the breeze . No path , no direction just pure bliss of freedom .
Poetry written in twigs .
Wait, Stop ,Watch the beauty around you. It makes you value life in more than one way .
