Frenzy followed by calm

Imagine a tree with a trunk that twists this way and that, swathed in a maze of deeply cracked bark. It’s gnarled dark brown branches jut out in a contorted mass, effortlessly supporting clusters of ballerina shaped blooms gently bobbing in the breeze.

A gale develops that catches the branches, causing them to creak and groan as the blossom is torn from their grasp. A silky blizzard of white petals tinged with pink dance in downward spirals as they are carried to the ground by the whistling wind.

Order returns to this snow dome scene, the skeletal tree appears naked in the Spring light. Gently undulating white chiffon forms a shifting circle surrounding the base of it’s tortured bulk. White, fluffy powder puff shapes speed across the azure sky above.

  1. Do you write books too? If not you should. I am addicted to your posts already. I have been doing the wordpress challenge for two years almost and this site is amazing. The talent and inspiration and Photo’s are really calming to me. I hope your Thanksgiving was delightful. Jackie 🙂
