Odd little tree.
Little, I may be.
But odd? Not me
It’s all perspective
A small cairn we passed this day.
What it’s for I cannot say.
Mostly gray it was, that day.
Though not all,
As I recall.
A curious row of Evergreen
Snowy fields, was in between.
Sometimes our wheels
Will bump and shake.
The path we take
May not be straight.
Sometimes a view that is the same
Looks different in another frame.
Poor wee tree
Better with a background shown?
What strange sort are these
Sadly bent and twisted trees?
You will see, come next Fall
Fruit in these branches all.
Apples, red and very juicy
On these trees you will see.
One thing we mostly cannot do
Is hide our tracks out of view.
Beneath the snow they still remain,
For all to see, very plain.
And that is quite enough of that!
The day started with a flat battery.
The car’s and mine.
Let’s blame DST.
It’s as good a reason as any.
These are pictures that I took a few days ago.
How often do you look at an image a second time and see something completely different?
Whether it is a function of aging eyes I don’t know, but these days I seldom see quite the same thing twice.
Often Brain tells me “that’s not what you think it is!”, so I’ll tilt my head and sure enough a pair of shoes becomes a dog, or something equally ridiculous. It’s rather disconcerting.
This, clearly is some sort of birch, but it immediately brings to my mind something quite else.
Maybe I’ll tell you tomorrow.
When the battery is recharged.

Thank you, Carolyn, for the couplets, the pictures are not bad either!
Eagerly for tomorrow’s installment.
Flat battery. Yes, definitely DST.
Trees never fail to fascinate me. I see the same ones every day on Ollie’s walks, but each time there is something different about them.
Best wishes, Pete.
The bright colours among the white snow are beautiful – I especially love the single green trees. I hope your battery is charged by now … sometimes it’s good to “lay low” for a while 🙂.
