Strong and sturdy trunk
Fragile delicate shadow
Living within one

Hi Mickie ... I love this! It is cool how the branches shadows show, but that we don't see the branches themselves.

Thank you for the nice things you said about my last post; I appreciate it so much.

I hope that you have a wonderful week!

Hey Harriet said...

Sweet shadows! And very nice how you've captured the source of the shadow up close. I enjoyed your poem also :)

oh you've captured the essence of this beautiful image so perfectly with your haiku...may we all be aware of the gift it is to know our wholeness.

Your image is wonderful! I like the diagonal composition, and the solid trunk compared with the shadowy branches. I can see a picture of a life in this: one lives, breathes, and acts; and the results reach out to the future.

Nice composition, picture and haiku. I like your header, too. Checking my dogwood yesterday I see the beginnings of bloom.

Hi Mickie,
I like your title strong and sturdy. It just make me reflect of what's happening around us. We have to be strong and sturdy for our loved ones, friends, etc. Or else we all shattered like pieces.
Thanks for the visit.

I love the way you've framed this with the tree trunk. Nice play of layered textures.

And by the way, that's a lovely shot of you and your daughter on the sidebar. You could be sisters.

What an interesting take on this - the rough solid bark in the corner and then the stretching, graceful shadow. Great capture. And I adore the soft puddle reflection of the robins below.
