the low moan of notes
coaxing light to come again—
Kokopelli’s flute

  1. Beautiful capture

  2. the softness of the leaves against the sky makes it look like a painting…lovely!!

  3. It is as if the tree opens its limbs like arms as it conducts the sunrise as an orchestra. And the flautists solo that accompanies the daybreak. Thus we see, hear and feel the new morn…

  4. Such beautiful words – and a glorious photo! What a beautiful tree!

  5. your images and photos are always so lovely

  6. The colours in the top part of the tree look like an impressionistic painting. Enchanting light.

  7. Nice part of the world – and for once in your blog, its a place I have been!

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne
