sunlight in the trees

P1030346

The branches hang trophies of golden light,
a dusky orange, bled from the seams
streaked like canon smoke

gnarled tree limbs
wave forth from sandy graves
supporting the weight of the sky

the remembrance,
of a misty blue-grey worth holding.

        I’m glad to meet a fellow nature lover! It’s good to keep it in our hearts- when I look out of the window and see apartments and grey buildings, I imagine I am somewhere with amazing scenery!

        I am thinking the same sometimes. I also think of nature when I feel sad or when I want to describe the wonderful things of life. Nature has this magic positive character. It is so wonderful! But some people do not even recognize nature as this wonderful place anymore. I am happy to keep this wonderful place deep in my heart and I am proud of living in this world with its fascinating nature!

        Yes exactly! Some people just don’t have that connection with nature, and would rather do other things instead of going out and experiencing it first hand. it is definitely good for the soul to get away! Also it is such great inspiration for writing 😉

        Yes of course nature is a wonderful inspiration.Everything seems to be wonderful when you look through the eyes of nature. I also use other humans as my inspiration. Humans ingeneral are very interesting I guess. It is beautiful to write texts of nature and life. What was your reason to start writing on your blog?

        Yes i remember at school in c writing class they would tell you to write about something, nature or an object you see, but try to explain it in a way that nobody has before! I guess my reason is because I love writing, and I wanted to publish my stories. But I guess now, I feel that I can express my creativity better through poetry, and I can share my work on the blog! How about you? 🙂

        Sounds good! I’m someone, who do not feel comfortable with words. I try to find pictures in nature, which describe what I want to say. I learned English and found out it’s the language of my heart. I found this place of poetry and texts to connect nature with my thoughts about life. I started with blogging, because it has this self therapeutic character for me to get through life. I am inspired by nature, humans and life. These are topics I want to share with others. That’s the story of my blog.
