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.

Written several weeks ago while I was taking some days away at a cabin.
Pine needles scattered
Latticework beneath the trees
Draped on everything
Cool mountain morning,
Threaded sunlight through branches
lifts the morning chill
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.
More offerings for your enjoyment. Today is a sunny spring day with still enough cool to make pants enjoyable.
Gentle breezes blow
Small twigs like a metronome
Shadows dance beneath
Even a dry spring
Wakens the blossoms to life
And tunes the bird songs
On a cool spring day
Distant lawn care machines roar
Drowning out the birds.
