    1. Hi Mark, it just happens that I’m working on a post about trees! Coincidence? Enjoy the rest of the weekend ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

  1. Hi Ashley, I love it! I’m quite fond of the symbolism of the world tree as you might have guessed. This is simple, beautiful and I love it! Thanks again for participating!

    1. Melanie, I just happen to be putting together my next post, about trees, or rather their demise, when Mark’s blog arrived in my inbox! So, I just had to take part. Thank you for your lovely comment ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment ๐Ÿ’ I couldn’t imagine what life would be like without them ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

  2. Beautiful verbal image and visual image. The verbal image bids me pause a while to consider and the visual image beckons me closer to touch the moss and rough bark. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

  3. Dear Ashley, this is a wonderful and atmospheric photo of an impressive tree. Your poem shows in a few words what amazing wonders we can find on our earth. We just have to open our eyes and look. I love our planet!
    Ashley, I wish you all the best! ๐Ÿ’

    1. Thank you, Lisa, ๐Ÿค— but the middle line was not my own. However, the challenge from Melanie was serendipitous. It happened just at the right time without any planning and well, it seems to have worked. The tree was photographed at the Argory, not too far from home. I will add a link if you would like to explore a bit more. Thank you again for your lovely comment. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

    1. Thank YOU, Joanna, for your lovely comment, as I listen to more Michel Pepe, ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’๐Ÿท๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

  4. Dear Ashley,

    I would like to thank you for commenting on my latest post entitled “โ„ โ… โ† Snowflakes, Tell Me Why You Areโ€ฆ“, which combines poetry, visual art, animations and science in an innovative way. I have since improved the post even more.

    You have done a fine piece of work to satisfy the challenge set by Melanie. I have enjoyed reading your tree-inspired miniature poem. Thank you for your poetic effort.

    I shall resonate with your love of trees as follows:

    Factories don’t make oxygen. Trees do. Respect nature.

    I also love the photo featuring that magnificent tree full of character, and wonder what species of tree it is.

    Happy September to you!

    Yours sincerely,

    1. Thank you for your wonderful response! I shall check in again to your posts. I have to be honest and say that I’m not sure which tree species is in my photo. I should know but the picture was taken a few years ago and I haven’t been in that location since. Happy September to you also. Keep well and safe! Ashley

      1. Dear Ashley,

        Thank you for wishing me well and safe. I can feel a great deal of warmth in your palpable affinity with trees and plant lives.

        How nice of you to visit and like my post entitled “๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿš€ One Day Weโ€™ll Fly Away โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ“! If you had visited the post in situ and not via the WordPress Reader, you would have witnessed that the post comes with animations, a feature that is rarely seen on other blogs.

        Therefore, all of my musical, animated and/or mixed media posts are best viewed in situ on my blog (not via WordPress Reader) on a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen, given that it contains intricate graphical designs, advanced styling and multimedia components plus animations.

        Please enjoy flying away with SoundEagle to your heart’s content at “๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿš€ One Day Weโ€™ll Fly Away โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ with the eye-catching animations throughout the post.

        I have visited and perused many of your posts, and wonder whether you have written any poem(s) regarding the moon. Being a poet, artist, musician, researcher, writer and a lover of moon myself, I wonder what you will make of my poems and my artistic take on the moon. Therefore, I would like to entertain, inspire and resonate with you through my most animation-intensive post presented to you as a courtesy of my dramatic attempt to bring the Full Moon alive, so to speak, in the form of Music Animation with Dynamic Visualization presented in high definition and imbued with a scintillating full moon surrounded by eye-catching astronomical phenomena and stellar activities!

        The post has been recently expanded to contain twelve poetic stanzas constituting my rhyming poem entitled “If My Name Were Moon Tonightโ€ฆ“.

        As usual, in order to see all of the animations, please make sure that you view the post on my blog and not via the WordPress Reader. May you enjoy to your heartโ€™s content the mixed-media offering of “If My Name Were Moon Tonightโ€ฆ” and its beautifully rendered Music Animation with Dynamic Visualization on the big high-resolution screen of your desktop or laptop computer. Switch the video playback to full-screen mode. The animation starts calmly and will gradually climax.

        There is also the opportunity to savour my own rendition of โ€œClair de Luneโ€ recorded on the organ.

        Happy Autumn!

        Yours sincerely,
