Through Twists and Turns #ThursdayTreeLove

Through life's twists and turns

I saw this tree on the way to the “natural arch” or “sila thoranam” in Tirupati. I found her–has to be a she, right?–intriguing. Apparently she has been around for longer than anyone can remember.

I thought the tree was beautiful, strong and a survivor, just like a woman.

No matter what life throws at her, no matter what weather conditions she faces, she stands strong, grounded.

Here’s my haiku as a tribute to her.

Through life’s twists and turns

I will survive. Head held high

I am a woman

    Love it Vidya! Trees are nature’s ultimate survivors, living for centuries. We saw a 2,000 year old tree last month in New Zealand. Looking at it, you can feel the history in civilization pass by observing each twist and turn in the tree. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    That is so definitely a female tree. Why? Not sure, but there is no doubt in my mind.

    You are so right Vidya. This tree is so human and the amount energy a huge trunk exudes is just incredible. Your words makes the tree alive and how!
