SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY 2: Knee-deep

waiting for spring's leaves

Hoosier Quote:
“Any fool can destroy trees.  They cannot run away; and it they could, they would still be destroyed-chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could got out of their dark hides.”
~John Muir~

Oh, my-I hope you're not too badly affected by those floods and rain (although it appears you might be). I hope you are well and that your house and home is also safe.

If only we had some of that precious water in the desert!

Love the telltale shadows of branches in the river. Hopefully the lone tree has its leaves by now. :-)

Let's hope Texas doesn't stay knee deep for long. No wonder it's the Lone Star State -- the rest of the stars drowned.

Such a gorgeous photo and a great haiku, I so love trees... amazing to see how some parts of the world have too much water and we are so thirsty here in California. Thank you Nonnie!

Laura said...

Oh Norma, what a gorgeous image, paired with your words of longing… beautiful!

thank you, Laura

Lea, thank you- I wish that there were a way for me to box up clouds to send to those in need of rain.

Norma Ruttan said...

it's heartbreaking watching the weather news about those states hit so hard.

Norma Ruttan said...

no, Paula, this was after a hard rain in early spring.

Ralph said...

Only the shadows add a happy look to the results of to much rain. A hope for drier skies by now is in order...

Beautiful root mandala. Looks like it's spread out on ice.

great haiku Nonnie. I like the John Muir quote, as well. I am a tree hugger. xo

The tenacity of nature persists; casting a shadow no matter the surface. I need to think about that.
Thank you for sharing.
