Where is Tree Healer?
Bid her soothe my grievous wounds
with her loving touch.

  1. Ouch, poor tree! The tree healer should bring wire cutters and a tetanus shoot as well as a loving touch.

  2. yikes…what’s going on here? the tree was part of the fence line? healer come quickly!!

  3. Smiling at Dina’s comment.

    I hope the tree will be OK. And what kind of desert tree might that be?

  4. Oh, yes! Healer come quickly indeed! Poor tree! Hope it recovers! Great capture and words as always! Enjoy your weekend!


  5. The barbed wire was surely part of a fence that keeps predators out. The tree, free of any constraints, grows at will. ‘Don’t fence me in’ says the sturdy tree, as it aims upward and outward – wire or no…

  6. Hmmm. Barbed wire is no friend to this tree, that’s for sure.

  7. I feel the tree’s pain. Ouch!

  8. yes, we need the tree healer. this one is all bound up!

  9. Nice shot and title.

  10. Very strong contrasts in your photo, but still beautiful.

  11. Yes, Tree Healer is needed to prevent more scars! But the tree may have its revenge and swallow the wire, eventually.

  12. Cruel, made me frown.

  13. My, what a tangled mess that tree is in. There may be a little missing bark and some outward scars, but that sturdy tree can weather it all. I’m sure it has already survived heat, wind, insects, drought, etc. –oh, that we could be that strong. Have a nice Sunday. Mickie 🙂

  14. Such a lovely photo, I feel for the tree…

  15. Tree looks like it was ate up with barbed wire. Excellent post. I have some learning to do. Posted my first haiku tonight. Pleased to met you.

  16. Ouch. That barbed wire does look painful. Looks like a ShadowShot from around St.Johns area. Nice photo and haiku too! Happy SSS.

  17. Such constraint! And, so many years of it, yet the tree still strives to grow. A metaphor lies in there somewhere, in addition to the one you’ve pointed out.

  18. poor tree indeed…happy SSS.

  19. The only consolation is that the tree seems to be very much alive! Still, this should not be in the first place! Great little haku!

  20. Cool shot. When you used the word healer, I saw the crown of thorns around that tree. Magnificent use of photo and words. Great job!


  21. Wire cutters are definitely on the agenda there! Nice one MMT.

  22. Barbed wire is vicious and if it foes to trees what it does to me…oh, how painful. Please leave our trees alone. Fine capture.

  23. Oh, that makes me sad … I hope that the tree healer arrives soon. Did the tree grow around the barbed wire? Great picture, MMT!

    Thanks for stopping by to visit. I hope that you have a wonderful SSS.

  24. Yow! That barbed wire looks painful!!

  25. A most interesting shot/shadow and haiku!
    hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

  26. If she had not looked back she may have gotten away.

  27. Nice Haiku! The poor tree strangled bu the barbed wire. Though it never ceases to amaze me how trees power through what ever inhibits them to keep on growing! Trees truly are amazing!

  28. Hmmm, what happened here?!

  29. What an amazing image of adaptability. I like the way the tree speaks through the poem. Healing is definitely in order for that tree.

  30. Awesome pair to bring the attention to the plight of the tree. Nicely done! You never cease to amaze me!!

  31. Wonderful haiku and perfect image

  32. nice one!
