Remembering Green-ness

Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.

--Kahlil Gibran

When the other side of the earth hosts springtime, our side (northern hemisphere) hosts the grey days of the year.  In 2 weeks we'll have Winter Solstice with  the longest night of the year.

This picture was a springtime joy and the water doesn't reflect sky so much as the green-ness all around it.  And look at that gorgeous color of the moss at the foot of the tree!

I share this with all of us looking forward to the changes mother earth brings, no matter what they may feel like.  I read a blog from Japan who just experienced another earthquake yesterday, and how his family is trying to live a normal life after they had to move from the area where the big one hit last year. 

I love reading blogs from people in the Southern Hemisphere where they share gorgeous plants and flowers.  For me, right now, it's a memory.

I share this as my Weekend Reflections contribution.

Barb, that photo is gorgeous, and I really like the quote. I get so much junk mail this time of year and it makes me sad and angry to think of all the trees that were cut down for such foolishness.

Blessings,

Victoria
