Lone Tree

When the tree was young he used to lean
toward the distant cluster of woods,
toward the islands, toward the sea.
For years now he's grown straight.
Happy on his own,
making a home
between the railroad tracks and the cliff.

  5. That is an outstanding photograph! I love the way the lightness of the sky highlights the shape of the tree. And the angle looking upwards give me a happy, soaring feeling. - Margy
