__Ah, this old tree and the stories it might tell.    The ink ?   _m

sap flows
such stories in each branch 
a bird's pen

Jan said...

Beautiful, _m!

As I read your words I pictured a mighty, gnarled Oak...
Its life's blood reaching for the upper most branches...
Carrying the stories this mighty tree has seen over hundreds of years and storing these in the Oak's many rings...
A bird's feather drifting down from one of its branches.
The quill to its paper~

Sorry...I do get carried away :)

Oh how I love the imagery in this one, Doug!
I, too, could vividly visualize an old gnarled oak as I read...and in my imagination I climbed high up from branch to branch...learning a new chapter in it's history at each resting point.
The bird's pen marks are there...but I lack sufficient skill to read their wisdom.
Perhaps one day, when my heart is more open...the words will become clearer...

Brilliant!! :))

__So nice to see you, Bhagya_ !!!
__LL, I hope you'll soon get rid of that infection! Your tree photo reminded me.
__Jan, ok, ok. You can get carried away anytime; yes, the quill is the bird's pen.
__"Y." After seeing LL's tree photo, I went back to my scribble book notes and
re-scribbled. this tree/bird/story, I still hear the bird's cues!
__Iris, the imagination can see, from the twig to the tree. Smiles!

I sincerely thank you all! _m

Rachel,
__ My dear wife Kathy, lost her father just weeks ago and if my simple words have given you some additional peace, Edith, I can selfishly praise myself for having done, a little bit of good. We hope all is well. _m

Lorraine Renaud said...
