"The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple, and love without measure." ~Tibetan Proverb
With prose like poetry accompanying it, how evocative this photo becomes.
And Here! I will make my Stand! Nice find.
It amazing where you see trees growing. Life is strong.
One nice thing about winter is at thie time of year we can see the graceful limbs of trees.
I've never thought of tree images in quite that way before since I dislike winter weather so much; gives me a different perspective but it's hard to be positive when it is currently -10 degrees, and that's not even counting the wind chill factor!
Beautiful sky, Kate! Your haiku is very fitting too.
Some trees pick challenging places to take root.
I love this photo!
I haven't seen Lake Superior in years. Birch trees were always one of my favorites (perhaps because they're so easily identifiable).
This is such a lovely and lonely image. I like your words and I like the comment from Parker.
It may be battered but still a beautiful birch. Carver, ABC Wed. Team
It must be strong to be able to withstand the weather at this spot. Lovely photo.Leslieabcw team
A wonderful, moody light adds drama to this birch tree, still looking beautiful!
Nice, but it makes me feel COLD!ROG, ABC Wednesday team
That certainly doesn't look like an easy life.
words and image are wonderful.
Love the poem and the battered Birch.Great post Kate.
Gorgeous lines of a bare birch.
Lovely! Those trees along the shore are hearty indeed!
That is an amazing photograph. Love that tree.
It would be interesting to see what twists this tree develops over the years as it fights the weather.
The haiku and the photo complement each other extremely well. PhenoMenon, ABCW Teamhttp://capturedalive.wordpress.com/2013/01/22/barbeque/
