Early in the Morning

My morning started with birds visiting our yard. The sun cleared the hill behind our house, and the birds became more active. I started taking pictures as the sun cleared the strip pit behind our house. I took pictures of the sunlight brightening the emerging leaves in the hackberry tree, the pine and the sweetgum trees.

The sunlight lit the few strands of spider silk and changed their colors to mostly orange.

I like the depth of the layered image of branches and new flowers emerging among them.

Shadowy Trees

I’ve debated with myself on whether to post pictures of trees with light and shadow patterns on their trunks. The wind and/or breezes blow the leaves and branches back and forth, adding movement to the shadow designs.

The changing positions of the sun change the shadows. For some reason the wind moving the shadows fascinates me.  I wonder if the wind is sometimes involved. There could be a request for slight movements or different degrees of active. Their positions are on the trunks on the east side in the morning and the west in the afternoon. They are so varied and become mesmerizing.

I wonder if anything can be “read” into the shadow designs? Is it a secret language? Maybe the earth made a request from the sun for some reason. Or it could be a kind of writing, and then the tree does what it’s meant to do.

The messages could travel inside the trunk,

and either down into the earth, or up and out into the sky.

  This would then transfer the energies to where they’re requested.

… Then there’s the huge oak across the highway. It definitely has a position of distinction. It could be transferring the energies and/or messages to where they’re requested.

 The highway department recently cut of several long limbs so they wouldn’t fall on the highway. That upset me. It’s such a huge majestic tree.

My husband stepped it off, and the crown spread of the tree is 35 yards.

 The base of the oak grows at the top of a little slope, only feet from the highway. It must receive messages for itself  and then send them to where they’re requested.

The oak grows directly across the highway from our kitchen. I’m definitely attached to it after living across from it for 40 years.

 This makes me curious about the spirit world and their possible activities.

… and I will continue to watch the shadows on the tree trunks.
