Banyan Fantasy

A  L  O  H  A !
" Shadow "

" Tales and dreams 
are the shadow-truths 
that will endure 
when mere facts 
are dust and ashes. "
                    Neil Gaiman

' And Light '

" Some people 
change their ways 
when they see the light, 
others when they
 feel the heat. "
                       Caroline Schroeder

 ' Dappled Delight '

In real life
the shadows
 dance in unison
to ever-changing 

' Dignified  Rank '

Can you hear
the tree sigh?
The breeze

Feel the Trade Winds,
raising the little 
hairs on the back
of your arm?

Thank YOU
for Dawdling here
with Us!
                           Fondly, cloudia

As a lover of trees I looove this post.. Have just been back to catch up on your Hawaii Cloudia, have missed your happy viewpoint very much.
If you Google 'bus accident Perth 14th July'.. the young woman was my nephew's wife, the 3 yr old Sophie my great niece, it's a miracle she survived, thank heavens.Such a tragedy.

Yes, I can. Deeply heard, and most enjoyed these old chaps, what beautiful, magnificent old trees they are.

Neil Gaiman is one of my heroes.
Shadows need light - which needs shadow to be appreciated and seen.

I sure felt the trades today and LOVED it! We've had so much muggy weather... but now there's Guillermo to worry about.
