#treesquare challenge is still running till the end of the month. I remembered this photo I took and enhanced a few years back, thought I would share it here on my blog.
Joyce Kilmer’s poem “Only God can make a tree.”
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
If anyone seeing this ever is in Spokane, please don’t miss a trip to visit Mount St. Michael, a historic and beautiful treat for all.
For a hundred years, Mount St. Michaelhas stood on a bluff overlooking the city. One day while walking around the park-like area, I noticed this ancient tree that seemed to be showing off a graceful twist. I could not help but capture its image forever with my camera; with the help of my photo editor, I added a bit of glamour with color and a graceful dancer to couple with the oversized tree growing there.
