The Whisper Tree

Whisper Tree

From a long ramble a couple weeks ago, the Whisper Tree. On rainy days you can hear it murmur; in sunshine it gives out a sonorous quiet. (Sorry about the blur, it doesn’t like being photographed.)

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity … and some scarce see Nature at all. But, to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself.

To me, it appears to be a bit like the palm of a hand viewed from the side. I’d be tempted to try to snuggle in the palm. I love trees, thanks for posting this pic.


Beautiful, magical, and inspiring!
