Lonely Tree

Lonely Tree

by Elizabeth Challinor

Lonely tree at a very empty

Llyn Cynwch, Dollgellau

What if

In your twisted branches

And exposed roots

We were to see

The beauty of persistence

The gift of vulnerability

The tenderness of surrender

Supported by

The generosity of the sky

And the promise of steadfast fidelity

In waters nearby

Inspired in the words and photo taken by Steve Reynolds
