I admire this lone tree. She stands on a hill above me so beautiful against the sky. Now in summer she shines in full leaf but is just as beautiful when all her leaves are gone. I think of her as the Stoic Tree standing alone tall and strong.
For over 20 years I have walked past this big tree hugging a little storage building. Over the years the tree flattened its trunk to accommodate the closeness of an unlikely partner. The ground is lifting around the two but they stay entwined like lovers.
These matching pines lined up just so to frame a long view. How thoughtful!
Some trees are appreciated for their bark alone and how we admire them. I don’t remember the leaves of this beauty, but the bark stays etched in my memory. Do you think the tree does this on purpose?
Trees! I love trees. I admire them. I wish they could speak. Maybe they do.
