Pause to admire your local tree.


 

 

Bright harmonious green firs stand erect in the sun
Bringing shade to the children out for a run
Waving slightly at the first hint of a breeze
Majestically growing for all to please
 
Yet at night when the sun has gone to rest
Dark branches sinisterly put us to test
Merging with the black inky sky they conspire
To monitor our movement after dark in the mire
 
Yet when the night relaxes and the day’s underway
We welcome their movement in the wind as they sway
Living beyond the three score years and ten
They observe my life from beginning to end.

The trees of Life

WHAT 'SEEMS' TO BE SO THREATENING IN THE SHADOWS OF THE DARK...IS ACTUALLY REVEALED TO BE A SUCH BLESSING IN THE LIGHT OF DAY. AMEN AND WELL DONE. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

I too, have trees that I planted twenty-eight years ago. How amazing it is that they have grown so majestic. Sadly, there will come a time when I will have to cut them down because of the danger they pose in a storm. They have already reached that point, but I'm trimming them back in the hopes that they will not drop huge branches on my neighbor's house in a hurricane.

Lovely poem about a lovely tree.

If trees could talk, they'd have many a story to tell.

Interesting, as you point out here, how our perspectives on the swaying trees changes from night to day. They are certainly one of God's mysterious and magnificent creations.
