“Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.”

I visited Hollis' blog "In the Company of Plants and Rocks" today and was struck with this quote from Khalil Gibran: “Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” Khalil Gibran, It seems particularly apt at this time of year when we get to see the complex patterns of the winter bare branches. Especially on a clear day like today. So here are some of the trees I saw writing poems today: 

All the above trees are in the Dells alongside Edinburgh's Water of Leith. The holly tree below is in North Merchiston Cemetery:

Very nice :)
I also run into those kinds of problems commenting on other Blogger blogposts, and not consistently. Yet another mystery ...

Hi Hollis, thanks for providing the inspiration!

It's very annoying to not be able to comment on other blogs and as you say, it's not consistent,
