Where stories live in a tree’s fleeting moments

Ode To a Tree

Photo by Tom Hearn – Ode To a Tree.

Tom is a local friend of a friend, and involved with BushTV, to see all the photos for Tom’s “Ode To a Tree” just click.

After browsing through Tom’s photos for “Ode To a Tree” the short bit of verse came to mind, as much erosion has occurred along the Capricorn coast, where many trees, and coastal dunes have fallen to the (rising) Coral Sea. Tom also gets around Australia a lot, and other places, so go check out the Bush TV website, and their Facebook page for stories, video, and more photos.

Where stories live in a tree’s fleeting moments
Where a tree stands alone, as its dune greets the sea, beneath the nightscape of stars all bright to be free. Something about the way the tree stands there waiting, looking out past the vast coral riddle escaping, for the peaceful ocean’s erosion of sands, rides upon the sounds of waves claiming the lands. But still the tree looks out up to the night sky, until the moment is time, for saltwaters to claim a short life. In a moment still to pass, where the stories will still remain, in the lofty memories of images, tales of the sublime. A life lived, and shared upon a trees fading dune, where the grass grew sweet to the sea’s breathing winds.
