Freedom


freedom
to reach the sky
once again


in the woods-
learning from trees
how to stand up to storms
~ ~ ~
Dear Friends, this weekend I'm sharing haiga, which is a combination of haiku and picture. These were inspired by my love of both the city and the country. The first is a picture of the New York City skyline, where you can see the Freedom Tower on the right, a wonderful tribute in memory of the victims of 9/11. I took the picture from the Brooklyn Promenade. The second is a picture of the woods in my own backyard. May we always stand tall. Peace. xx

  2. Nice. Ha. So you went into town and touched the sky again?
    I like the second one. There is much to be learned of trees.
    How to stand tall, how to reach for the heavens. How to bend
    in the storms. Happy Sunday.

  5. There is definitely a lesson we can learn from the trees. I was in NYC this summer for a glorious week. I'd say .... it is good to see the Freedom Tower on the skyline towering over the moving 9/11 Memorial. Yes, may we always stand tall!
