But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee, and the birds of the air and they shall tell thee...Or speak to the earth and it shall teach thee...
Job 12:7-8
A prehistoric creature
Could be our teacher,
Bespoken on a tree trunk..
Where he has his bunk...
Sleeping without a pillow
On the weeping willow..
Broken are its limbs
From high winds...

Legs in the snow,
The beast giving lessons
Wants all to know
Tho' ancient tree is gone,
A dragonesque legion
From days of yore
Might still be living on
To tell us what for.
Poetry by me AJP

    Thank you all for your comments and fav's...Betty, I used a polarizer filter on my
    wide angle camera lens because it was very bright outside, even manually
    stopping down to f/22. I wanted to show the deep blue sky as it was without the bright sun washing everything out.
