Look Up


look
up
always
as sunrays
and patches of blue sky
shine through a canopy of trees

forming a green arch over you
purifying the air
and the soul
never
look
back


Dear Friends, today, I'm sharing a Fibonacci poem. with a syllable count of 1,1,2,3,5,8,8,5,3,2,1,1. This was inspired by sitting outside in my back yard and looking up at the trees. I have quite a variety of tall trees--pine, spruce, oak--and fresh air!


I'm also sharing a window view of the trees from inside my new home. On the windowsill, I placed a basket full of Impatiens, which like the shade and just a bit of sun shining through.


I hope this post inspires you to look up and on the bright side of things!
Have a great weekend! xx

  2. Your new home is certainly gorgeous isnt it. I love all your trees. I grew up playing in the woods and trees, so that takes me right back to being a little boy. I could get lost in them for days. Ha.

    Nice job on the form as well. Hope you had a good week L.

    1. Hi Vandana, it's in the countryside of New York, only an hour from New York City. Much quieter and more peaceful than the city. :) Thank you!
