CONKLES HOLLOW AND THE GORGE TRAIL with ( ROBERT FROST ON MY MIND )

A MY WORLD Tuesday,WATERY,OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY POST

(CONKLES HOLLOW IN THE HOCKING HILLS NEAR LANCASTER,OHIO)

pumpframed

The well was dry beside the door,
And so we went with pail and can
Across the fields behind the house
To seek the brook if still it ran;

framedfield

Not loth to have excuse to go,
Because the autumn eve was fair
(Though chill), because the fields were ours,
And by the brook our woods were there.

framedbridge

We ran as if to meet the moon
That slowly dawned behind the trees,
The barren boughs without the leaves,
Without the birds, without the breeze.

framedcreek

But once within the wood, we paused
Like gnomes that hid us from the moon,
Ready to run to hiding new
With laughter when she found us soon.

framedwater1

framedwater2

Each laid on other a staying hand
To listen ere we dared to look,
And in the hush we joined to make
We heard, we knew we heard the brook.

framedwater3

framedwater5

A note as from a single place,
A slender tinkling fall that made
Now drops that floated on the pool
Like pearls, and now a silver blade.

Thank you Mr. Robert Frost for your beautiful poem.

THE TROUBLE TREE author unknown. PUT A TREE IN YOUR LIFE TODAY

A SPIRITUAL SCENIC SHADOW SHOT SUNDAY

In Ohio this year we have snow hanging on  tree limbs making an attempt to look like Spanish Moss.  (  LOL )

CONTRAST

Probably, one of the more rewarding things I’ve done with my life is to have planted hundreds and hundreds of trees. Mostly pine,walnut,maple, and fruit trees. I’ve cut a few trees down also. One year I heated our home with a wood stove and a lot of firewood. There is something special about splitting wood and the smell of smoke in the air. On the snowy day I took this photo there was the smell of an upcoming storm and smoke in the air.

In a previous post I’ve talked about Ohio’s Gray/Grey skies. Let me ask you, “Is this next photo color or black&white?” ( Maybe Just HAUNTED )

Ok how about a splash of color

(ONE OF THE BACKYARD PEACH TREES)

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.John Muir

A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit. D. Elton Trueblood

MARCH WINDS
March winds and April showers
Bring forth May flowers.

One misty moisty morning,When cloudy was the weather,I chanced to meet an old man,Clothed all in leather.He began to compliment And I began to grin.How do you do? And how do you do?
And how do you do again?

wintersky3

Spring is showery, flowery, bowery;Summer—hoppy, croppy, poppy;Autumn—wheezy, sneezy, freezy;Winter—slippy, drippy, nippy.

wintersky4

A sunshiny shower Won’t last half an hour.
