Rings of Time #poetry #photography


 

spotlight redwoods

 

Rambling  words at the beginning of  life

infancy

Eager to reach and stretch toward the sky

adolescence

Doting over little ones who sprout and giggle

parenting

 Watching as they go on without you

middle age

One tight smile as they watch you wither

seniority

Offensive  sounds ringing in ears

Finality

hands of time stopped

Timber!!!!

rings
