Giving Tuesday

My Dear Reader,

Today I am asking if you can find it in your heart and budget
to make a donation to Leaf And Twig.

Every day I craft a moment’s appreciation
of nature’s beauty in photos
with a brief reflection in words;
aiming to increase the incandescence of joy
and to hold a light when life is dark.
I offer you my vision
and this quiet space for connection and recognition.
There is nearly 10 years of daily posts for you to wander through;
which is searchable by keyword and post title.
So, if you find joy and value in what I do
I hope you will make a donation
by clicking the button below

touching down
to commune with the trees


Like Walking To School Through The Blossoming Orange Grove

a scent so
delicate and delectable
it transports me back to childhood

The Nest

woven with care
so fledging feet
will remember softness

Defying The Elements

sweet hydrangea
her summer bloom lingers
on a honeycomb of petals

Remembrance Of The Forgotten

the fluidity of bloom
the force of bloom


as autumn’s color departs
we store its memory
for winter sustenance

Two Came Together

summertime visit
from dear friends
long departed

Still Being With Her Whilst She Is Gone

The Roots of Memory

recording the history
of the mountain

Warm Memory To Store For Winter

a Saturday landscape
the playful breeze
and laughing leaves


remembering it all
spring summer fall
raven heads into winter
