Away from the daily grind

life’s ado not me

harried hoi polloi driven

to the nth degree

bring forth simple times

life’s hammock of paradise

neath my favorite tree

stately and certain

brightened by the old lamppost

soul-nourishing moments

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #227

The Saturday Symphony #27. April Edition. “Tree Bliss”

“This month, pick a tree and write about it. It can be one you have visited, or one you have only seen in media, or one with special significance or sentiment to your life, even one from childhood. As an added bonus for your readers(and me), let us know how that tree makes you feel.”

  1. Soul does get ‘nourished’ with the manner you use ‘n’ in the piece. We need this freedom to put things together our own way.

  2. I like the contrast. nature has a beauty in her lines and humans have this sense of being rushed along.

  3. “Love life’s hammock of paradise” I probably need to spend more time there.

  4. What a radiant poem accompanied with beautiful photos. The tree and sunshine peering through it just warmed the cockles of my heart. 💖💖

  5. Brilliant take Eugenia

  6. Such a refreshing and nourishing post! Like being amongst the trees, sitting in the shade of an old friend.

  7. Time among the trees is much needed soul nourishing we all need.

  8. A very relatable post, Eugi! <3

  10. My willow isn’t strong enough to hold a hammock. I do though have a hanging rope chair in my porch (I can stretch my feet out long too). And look out at all the trees and the birds visiting the feeders 😀

    May we all find tranquil moments to treasure!! ✨

  11. Beautiful. Soul nourishing, indeed.
