Couldn’t resist taking some pictures yesterday along our greenway which runs beside a river. The fresh springs greens of the leaves and grass are just so much more intense this time of year. I captured a few of the wildflowers starting to come in along with a few new families I saw swimming in the river. Hope everyone has a very blessed Sunday and Praise God for the beauty of His earth!
Stumps of Glory Stumps of Glory On display All of what you might say Oh, what stories & of history You must have seen Rising still proud Among the leafy crowd You stand out Your voice still Clear & loud Of longevity, Paternity Firmly still there Younger ones May stare But will not dare To root you out Your core essences Still deep in a Blackened soil So, take pride In this your life I may pass & stare As your beauty Fills the blue airs Above my head To watch you Once again declare The eternal, ancient Triumphs of All Nature’s Glories! I got a chance to get on our river's greenway this morning. Hope you enjoy the photos & poem. Have a blessed day & Praise God!
Graceful Ladies (a slight whimsy) Graceful ladies All in a row Is it just for glee You choose to show Your whitest underbellies Shedding dark bark You simper & glow From top to toe As you continue to Strut in your underclothes! My Mama would be shocked Papa enraged If I dared to engage In such behavior I cannot do the same As you Nor dare I choose Such brave frivolity!
The large old sycamore trees along our river greenway are even more lovely in winter when, without leaves, you can see their white bark even better. Have a blessed day & Praise God!
