whenever I think of one of the most unique features in nature, it's God gift of trees. I, believe that trees have personalities. The weeping willow, it's limbs so limp touching toward the ground as if it were wearing a long flowing gown. The cherry tree, with it's beautiful pink blossoms that invite eyes to gaze upon it's it's remarkable color and petals. The old oak tree, strong, towering over all other trees. The seasons change. Fall brings leaves that once were green now are brown, orange, and red on many of the trees. Fruit trees becoming empty of apples, pears. Slowly the leaves fall to the ground. Sounds made as footsteps bear weight on the leaves. The trees looking so different from warmer times. The once full bodied trees are looking empty and sad. A quietness is noticed as winter has arrived. Oh! come soon, Spring, Spring to bring warmth so that buds begin to appear and more noticeable life is awakening with God's gift of TREES.
It sways back and forth as the wind makes it's presence noted.
Slowly the wind dies, the trees become stationary.
Squirrels, run up and down it's body,
Birds fly back and forth to pick a safe place to build a nest for
their babies among the tree limbs. Eventually,
the sound of baby birds is heard and they add an excitement to
to those who hear and behold this new life.
Oh! how I love trees.
What part on nature do you see as God's gift to you? There is so much, it's not always easy to choose and why?
