We hanged our harps upon the willows, in the midst thereof..Psalms 137: 2

My husband liked this gift...
On year 2007 of his birthday
As the man in the chair lift
Arrived the last day of May...

The Weeping willow he did trim
And a dead elm was cut down
Top to bottom...limb by limb
Chunks fell to the ground...

The old weeping willow
Died in 2010 with dignity...
from a wind storm's blow...
It suffered the same fate
As the dead Elm tree
But on a later date...
To fall with grace below.....

The tree now sings songs...
In the pitch it belongs.
Notes once sung worth,
In a sharp high- key above.
The trunk upright stands
Broken limbs anchor the earth
To curve over the land....
In humbleness with love
Like a harp hung in a willow
To play softly below...

Poetry by me, AJP

This was a shot of the tree trimmer from the power company cutting branches off our then standing weeping willow tree... One of the huge limbs on the other side of the tree had broken off before this and then three years later the entire tree fell down except for the massive trunk from a wind storm. I am so glad that I shot this photo to show the immensity of the size of that tree and just how close it was to our house...Thankfully it didn't fall on top of the house.

I had earlier posted the previous photo for the challenge...but I think this is a stronger entry because it shows the tree trimmer in the process of cutting the branches, the equipment that the hydraulic chair lift is attached to and the view below and above.
