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!!!!

Nature’s Masterpiece #photography #haiku #photochallenge

skin 047

cream colored edges

entice me with your smile

velvety soft they lie

painting fall with the rainbow

Fall’s vibrant palette

brush strokes of perfection

caught by artist’s eye

look up

Redwoods take their stand

majestically they tower

reaching toward the sky

nature offers so many masterpieces here are just a few for the wordpress weekly photochallenge
