Circle of Trees


There is a circle of trees in the woods where I walk.

There’s a tree stump in the middle which invites me in.

When I stand on that stump, I feel like one of the trees.

I hold out my arms as if to touch branches with them and look up to the sky to be closer to the tree tops.

(I never took a self-portrait like this before. I set the timer on my camera and stood as I do when I’m with the trees.  I wanted a picture of us together.  And of course Fate and Gus, wearing  his hoodie muzzle, were a part of it too.)

  1. Oh, Maria! I love the photo and the poem!! You set up the camera so perfectly to capture your written words. (or the other way around?) Annie
