Twisty Twig

Photo by SnaggleTooth April 2010
Hear the sky calling leaves
Reaching up to breathe
Wind sculpts twisting shape
Cools tempo drawing late
So thin sleep becomes now
Stirring back to life
New beginnings rise
Waited so long to try
Longing to soar over
Shade sitting under
Green shoots pushing through
Seek purchase finding truth

The photo is gorgeous, Snaggle. There's something about branches and sky that is just lovely - especially twisted, interesting branches.

"Hear the sky calling..." - I love that line!

Ahh, eternal green reaching for the truth it is programmed with, a lovely thought.

The truth of green so pure and beautiful, like this poem and photo.

Hope your sleep has not been too thin.

Lynn, Thankyou- totally brought on by looking at the pic yesterday.

Talon, I was out sitting on the woods hill to escape the neighbors party noise. I looked up n there that sight was lookinf so unique.

Paige, it all looks so great when ya leave out all the unpleasant stuff- If I put work pics here it would totally kill my fun spot tho!

JanF, Maybe I'll find time to go back n get a pic of the leaves before gypsy catapillars take over n eat them. My Sleep has been extremely skinny all week, but winter's hibernation is over for the plants.

Will a second round of leaves come back to replace the critter-munched ones?

JanF, in June 2006 we had a bumper crop of catepillars, blogged about here

n it's been fairly bad since- but that was the worst I've ever seen-
Sometimes we get a second burst from the oaks.
