Blue Sky


blue sky, green pine tree--
unbound, soaring to new heights; 
heaven and earth touch
~ ~ ~

These are some of the amazing views I found in nature today:
 a tall pine tree touching a cloudless sky, the bluest of blue


tree branches with light blue berries, reminiscing of the colors in the sky


ivy growing on a tree trunk stump, the circularity of which is timeless


creamy buds and leaves in perfect synch

  4. Good Day Loredana, I have added the link to your Tackle It Tuesday post to the linking tool, but I couldn't find your emailadress so I used mine. Would you please send me an email on my emailaccount kristjaan1963panneman@gmail.com ?

    Well ... back to your haiku. I like this one very much, you have used the theme on a different way than I used it, but this one is full of passionnate love for nature.
    Thank you for sharing.

  6. Dear Loredana,

    I think I have found the deeper meaning, the metaphor in this one. I sense in this one spiritual growth, as seen in the green pines reaching for the sky. Earth touching Sky. Man searching for the deeper meaning of life and God.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    Namaste

  9. Hi Loredana! I was just noticing the same light blue (juniper?) berries on a bush near here. I think that we may live at the exact same latitude because your photos always look so familiar to me though I have never been in NY!
