you see a tree,
its awesomeness takes your breath away;
you may feel,
the most beautiful in the world is a tree in full flower,
holding on to its place with an intrinsic stubbornness, displaying innocence and fragrance
in an abundance of beauty
colour, layer upon layer,
humming and trembling with life.
Grevillia robusta/ Silky Oak;
25 years ago this tree was a tiny seedling I gave to my neighbour. He planted it in his garden.
In the past 25 years t the garden has changed hands many times, Yet, the tree is still here, has matured and become part of this garden.
