Lately I pay more attention to my surroundings and all things in nature. I walk around the parks looking for natural textures and colors. It is amazing how different the roots of trees can be. I photograph all parts of the tree and there is a definite geometry to appreciate.
I would love to see the geometry in the photos you might have taken. Participate in the challenge for the next five days. Publish a new post with a photo interpreting the weekly theme. Create a pingback to Poemattic to share your post with others.
It is not coincidence
Nature knows it’s Geometry
the grooves and curves carved
in an old wise tree
have perfect symmetry.
the leaves are put exactly
where they ought to be
so when the sun decides to peek through
the colors resonate to create a fantasy.
Ornately carved in a tree trunk
The initials W & M find permanent refuge
For years people have walked by in wonder about their fate
A small stone bench sits underneath
Waiting patiently for them to return
While Autumn leaves gather round
In attention of the crunching sound
made as they approached.
Many falls have come and gone; almost 40 to be exact.
And what do you know W & M finally did come back.
They watched another couple sitting as they had sat so many times before.
on the small stone bench underneath the tree,
where their initials had been engraved forever more.
I did not like the idea of my daughter getting a tattoo
But I do love trees and I thought of the poem Trees
and so I stole a line from the poem
I cannot remember what I did to make it look like a negative
But I think I made my point
MOSTLY MONTREAL, MOST OF THE TIME
