A: Do you know?

Wisdoms ways are ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her; and happy
is every one that retaineth her...Proverbs 3: 17-18

A big limb
From the Willow Tree
Finally broke free
Singing its dying hymn,
Cracking and creaking
Like old bones breaking
I heard it splinter
Sighing as it crashed down.
May it rest in peace
Lying on the ground;
Til' it gives us heat
To warm our feet
This winter.
Poetry by me AJP

    Andrea, I am glad it missed your car. (BTW, nice car!) But, you must leave the log where it lies. It will shelter wildlife and provide sustenance for years to come. "She is a tree of life . . . ."
