The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.

William Blake

  1. ’tis very true.

    Applies to people too.

    Indeed. And others see furniture and shelter. Ain’t life and perspectives varied. :)

    I think that I shall never see
    A poem lovely as a tree.

    A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
    Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

    A tree that looks at God all day,
    And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

    A tree that may in summer wear
    A nest of robins in her hair;

    Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
    Who intimately lives with rain.

    Poems are made by fools like me,
    But only God can make a tree.

    Joyce Kilmer

    I guess this is when we say “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!” Indeed.

  5. Sounds like a good slogan for the Green party! ;)

  6. Isn’t this so true…when we are truly in touch with nature, we see a thing of beauty…and a most important part of life on this planet.

    great image. i like the variation of the tree from a stout trunk all the way to fine slender twiggy branches, all against the light.
