Subtle Sunday

Subtle is one of those elusive words for me. So I’m going to try and apply my subtle mind, and see if I’ll be able to make the fine distinctions.

ouchmybackhurts reckons finding something subtle is not easy, I couldn’t agree more.

Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!

A lot. Thankfully, I love role-playing. Somedays I pretend to be a poet. Alone in the house, wearing a poet’s hat I recite words before the mirror. Satisfied with myself, I saunter out the front door in search of a nightingale. But only to find neighbours – the curious lot, lingering outside my door pretending to be walking past. They probably think, I’m as mad as a hatter.

I live and walk among trees. I talk, listen and even hug them. So, this week’s theme is a bit of a challenge as I’d have liked to present all kinds – impossible! Instead I decided to stick with the rhyming ones.

Flaming Trees



Frozen Trees



Falling Trees



Fruit Trees



Flowering and Forever Trees

Flowering & Forever

Flowering & Forever

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth…” – Hermann Hesse

One Colour

Spring is in the air!

Enduring colour

Snow disappearing,

Abundant light

Promising bloom

Smile warm as sunshine.

Monotonous conversation

Make way, festivities

About to start

Sameness, happiness

Spring preluding summer,

Just one colour I ask.

…is not an option.

There’s nothing glamorous about the weather and the outdoors at the moment

but one has to keep wading in order to find beauty.
