An amazing photo essay all about old trees. Makes me want to buy her book Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time

Beth Moon, a photographer based in San Francisco, has been searching for the world’s oldest trees for the past 14 years. She has traveled all around the globe to capture the most magnificent trees that grow in remote locations and look as old as the world itself.

Monday Morning Haiku- Mountain Cabin



Cool mountain morning,

Threaded sunlight through branches

lifts the morning chill

-mtroupe 2015

Obviously, the poem below is not a haiku. Enjoy it anyway…

The cabin rests beneath the trees

As passing seasons roll

The living wood is fresh and green

The cabin wood grows old.

Monday Morning Haiku Springtime March 9, 2015

Haiku Dance Floor


More offerings for your enjoyment. Today is a sunny spring day with still enough cool to make pants enjoyable.

Dance Floor

Gentle breezes blow

Small twigs like a metronome

Shadows dance beneath

-mtroupe 2015



Even a dry spring

Wakens the blossoms to life

And tunes the bird songs

-mtroupe 2015



On a cool spring day

Distant lawn care machines roar

Drowning out the birds.
