Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee...St. Luke 14:10

Yesterday we had a hail storm and I shot a few pictures of it from an upstairs window..However, I felt more compelled to shoot this interesting formation on the fallen limb of our weeping willow tree that went down last October.. I could view the limb right in line with my vision directly across from the window of the upper story..

I was intrigued with what I saw ...When I looked at it to begin with I could see the formation head of an ancient man with a long beard and high cheekbones wearing a wide brimmed hat .... It looked like a weathered fisherman of the sea.. But when I uploaded the picture I could also see a chicken head with its beak wide open... Of course what is imagined and what is real are two different things....It depends on the point of view:)

A fisherman's hat with a brim
Would form on a fallen limb
Of an ancient tree now dead...
It may change before your eyes
To transform into a chicken head;
Its beak wide open in surprise.
Is it a beak or a hat askew?
Depends on the point of view!

    This is great! I perceived something completely different: I saw a giant eye socket, with the eyeball peering to the right.

    Actually in the very beginning I did see the eye socket which is what drew me to
    it and then it changed where I saw the brim of the hat...and then the face fell into place...And lastly the cartoon- like chicken head...The more you look the
    more you see and imagine it to be. Thanks for the comment.
