Silent Sunday :: Stillness
Tree square :: Beautiful surprise
Do you know that feeling when you see an unexpected beauty on your way?
Yes, yesterday I had that feeling. This beautiful pear tree was on my way when I stopped by the grocery store. I’ve been many times to that store, but I’ve never seen this tree. Why? Because when I go, I always park closest possible to the entrance, and of course, no trees around.
Yesterday I was driving my hubby’s car, he is very careful with his car, and I didn’t want people scratching it with the shopping carts, so I looked for a distant spot for parking, and voila! This tree caught my attention.
Sometimes changing the routine can bring us beautiful surprises.
Sharing with Becca’s Tree Square.
Tree Squares :: Tree of life
joy willow mystery youth and passion mixing laugh and tears underneath the branches the roots searching for water orchestration of the branches leaves caressing faces without shame the bark is apt to put down fever, aches following the motion, lightness is dancing the music is powerful reaching up and down dreams are alive under the willow tree, forgiveness the tree of life a soul mission ready tho heal open friendship grounding, flying, hearts and bodies
Becca’s squares this month is all about trees! I wrote a syllabic poetry form named Tree of Life here for WQWWC challenge from Marsha, she suggested I also post a Tree of life poem for Becca’s challenge. This poem has a tree outline. I wrote this one inspired by a willow tree in my neighbourhood.
Hope you enjoyed!
My city is dressed in blossoms! Lots of pink and white trees, a few yellow magnolias. It’s very pleasant to have a stroll around here.

The campus used to be full of students at this time of the year since is the middle of the term.
Today they would be wearing costumes and they would visit all the departments to get treats. The faculty would be dressed up too to give treats. I would wear my old witch hat, and a spider stick on my hand.
Halloween at the university is a tradition that we all look forward to. The students, most of them young adults, behave like kids. It’s lots of fun to watch them discussing their treats with their peers and commenting on which department has given the best ones. I love to see their costumes and the smile on their faces.
This year, with all the classes online, it’s difficult to spot a student on campus. I hope they find a way to enjoy themselves this Halloween.
It is Autumn!
It’s the first day of autumn! A time of chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves!Winnie the Pooh
Happy new season to you! Autumn or Spring the Earth is dressed in colours for the pleasure of our eyes and soul. Enjoy the new season!

We planted this cherry tree in our backyard a few years back. She was 2 feet tall, a say a baby tree. Now she’s maybe 8 feet tall and she is blooming!
I say ‘she’ because to me all the trees are female. They are fertile, they give flowers and fruits, they are home for birds and other animals. They are always ready to give security and love. Oh! if you don’t know yet, I’m a tree hugger too!
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul.
Wishing a wonderful May to you! Stay safe!
