The Cemer Tree

Stands

Sentinal

Over All The Souls

That

Passed This Way

I

Walk Past Her

Every Day

And

Offer Her My Love

From

Tiny Footsteps

To

Wooden Canes

The Folk

Have

Walked In Joys and Pains

She May

One Day

Stand Guard Over My Bones

At Journeys End

Through

This

Azul Transient Maze

The Sheep

The Sheep

I

Had a Chat

With

The Sheep in the Field

This Morning

As

The Paths

Of

Our Walk did Collide

The Old One’s

A

Little Bit Feisty

Their Young

Full

Of Beauty and Pride

Fine Morning

Well Met

I Declared with a Smile

To Which

The Eldest Replied

The Grass

In

The Meadow

Is

So Sweet and Plentiful

But

There Is Nowhere

To

Run To

Or

Hide

Martins In The Early Morn

Martins In The Early Morn

 Martins

In The Early Morn

Gathered Around A Puddle

Scooping

Mud Into Their Beaks

Then

Flying

In A Bee-Line

To Build

Anew

Or

Repair An Older Nest

Busy

Enterprising

Industry

Throughout The Long Hot Day

Flying Til’

The Nightime

Brings Them

A Well Earned

Rest

Cigano’s

  Cigano’s

They Came

And

Stayed For One Night

Horses And Ponies

A

Hinny

Pegged Out All About

Eating

The Lush Grass

And

Herbs In Abundance

The River Bank

Here

Is An Oasis

Of

Plenty

He Said

But

Oasis Or Not

We Have To Move On

As Moving On

Is What We

Do

 Best

The Weeping Willow

The Weeping Willow

 Image

 

If Leaves were Eyes

The Willow Tree

Stands and Weeps

Each Drop

Of

Rain

Like Tears

Falling

To

The Rippling River

Absolving

A Little

The World Of Pain

Decked In Hazel Finery

For Spring

Green and Yellow

Yellow and Green

Like

Hazel Eyes

Her

Weeping Leaves Have Seen

Joys and Beauty

Sorrows and Pain

And Now

With Spring

She Prepares

To

Stand Witness

To

It All

Yet

Once Again

The Old Olive Tree

The Old Olive Tree

Image 

 

Three or Four Years Ago

This Massive

Old Tree

Was Cut Down

To

A Stump

With

Endurance and Calm

She Has produced

Two new Trees

Growing

East and West

Left and Right Out Of Her Trunk

Smooth and Glossy

Now

The Fruits

She Offers Us

Better By Far

Than

Those From Her Past

For Me

She Has Become A Symbol

Of

Endurance and Tenacity

Also

A Seat Where I Sit

And

Meditate

To

Feel her Strength and Peace

Find a Direct Path

Straight

To

My Heart

The Ancient Apple Tree

 Image

 

As The First Cuckoo

Echoes

Down The Valley

The Ancient Apple Tree

Stirs Her Stumps Again

Bedecked Out

In

All

Her Full Glory

She Arises From

Her

Winter Slumber

How Many More Years

Of

Fruits And Flowers

Before

She Resigns Herself

To

Being Lumber?
