rowan tree –
an old man
braced against the wind

and probably very wise…winds and years learn a lot… beautiful landscape too, is it a familiar scenery?
Thank you Frederic. I love these bent rowans. I think this would be central Wales or perhaps the lowlands of Scotland.
beautiful landscape anyway!
Like the imagery.
Thank you 🙂
Let’s just hope that he remembers to bend! Lovely imagery, Rachael.
A message to those of us who sometimes forget 🙂
Thank you, Richard. 🙂
Lovely, indeed. And your poetry highlights that some of us do indeed see it as a self-portrait. Thanks.
Thank you. These are strong fearless trees that bend rather than break… 🙂
Would that we were more able to follow their example. We have some on the prairie that look much like that as well, but since we have north wind in the winter and south in the summer, it is not as pronounced, nor are they as strong, I suspect. 🙂
Wow, what a beautiful personification of this tree! Simply perfect, Rachael.
Ha! Thank you. Some of them really are like gnarled very ancient people – the trees that are well past their prime even more so.
Have a good week, dear friend.
Awwww…beautiful imagery ❤❤❤
Thank you. Those rowan trees on the hills are pretty special.
