evergreen thoughts



if you are feeling somewhat bent over
lean on the strength of something that is not

pine3


out on a limb ... look below ..
embrace the yellow leaves to cushion you


pine2.

like pine cones and needles
through each season . always stick together

pine

under the evergreen
we lean on one another
sharing Imperfect Prose

this reminds me of a lovely song by steve bell and his daughter... "trees do bend, though straight and tall -- so must we to others call." i think you'd like it -- you're lovely and lyrical, too.

why not go out on a limb that's where the fruit is

More perfect than imperfect...your words and your images that is:) I love how you manage to say so much with just a few words...

you can certainly feel the fog in these images. I love (love) the single twinkling light in the header - clever you!

elizabeth said...

I like to pause in the woods occasionally and hug a tree. They feel so comforting and strong and I can feel any tension drain away.

Much like I feel when reading this reminder.

Melissa Campbell said...

I love the space here--the white, the simplicity, the pause. I love your photos, and the reminder that relationships are what matter. Blessings to you.
