This Is The Wall

that doesn’t separate us
but rather
it’s presence connects us

Never Stopping

the sky
crosses the boundary
of forever

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

That’s not six feet.
It feels like six feet.
Well it’s not. It’s three at most.

the rock wall
the landscape itself

we meet each other
and find ourselves

to the power and durability
of rock and stone

The Old Dame’s Rock Wall

huddled together
against the cold
warm in company

the flowering tree

weathering the weather
shoulder to shoulder

The Winter Garden

cold nor dormancy
stills the enchantment

In The White Quietude

like fresh snow
tranquility settled
over everything
