From The Executive Branch


leaf and leaves now leave me speechless
left and right twist meaningless
centered in the symmetry
nature turns quietly
grown perfectly
you and me
so simple
so free
giant oak trees-around-the-world
The Angel Oak

  1. No one knows whose life they touch
    or who they will embrace. Just by
    actions that they do or being
    face to face. But your life
    will be noticed as the
    brightly colored trees,
    as either brilliant
    beauty or a pile
    of dried up’

    P.S. The last few words are a little tongue in cheek Keith, but they fit rather nicely into a nonet – well not quite (a nonet)

    Warmest regards


  2. Thank you, Lilly! 🙂 No, I’ve never been to Florida. 😦
    You might say, I’m a bit too well-grounded to pull up
    roots and head south, much as I’d like to. Cheerz! UT

  3. Nonet? LoL 🙂 I had to look it up. 9’s are up my alley.
    “The Nine Faces Of Christ” by Eugene Whitworth
    is my study material at present. Esoteric fiction –
    that goes to show how many gods it takes to make
    One Supreme. Jeshua goes to Stonehenge and Glastonbury,
    then India, Persia, and Egypt. Super-interesting stuff.
    The missing years exposed. I read it 6 years ago, but
    I wasn’t ready for it, and could hardly remember the stories.

    Anywhoo, I like your poem! Good rhymes and true rhythm.
    Take care, bro! I always enjoy your visits. Peace, Keith

  4. Yip – ‘nonet’ was a new word for me too. Had to look it up myself; but your kind of upside down pyramid needed a word. However, I agree that ‘9’ does appear to hold a tantalizing mystery.

    Peace to you too Keith 🙂


  5. A truly nice compliment, Noel. Thanks a bunch!
    And, once again I’ll let you know how much
    I appreciate your continued support!

    Peace to you, my friend.
    Uncle Tree 🙂

  6. I love your tree poems and those amazing photos! (As a friend of mine would say, trees are one of my favorite “animals”.) Thank you for visiting my blog – it’s good to meet a kindred spirit. 🙂

  7. What a beautiful post! I love both trees, but especially the one suspended in the air. Am looking forward to checking out the “Nine Faces…” Best wishes, Uncle Tree, * Elizabeth *

  8. Yes, just downloaded to my NOOK. Have done a lot of reading and study on the non-fiction side, (a fan of Pagels, Freke and Gandy) but haven’t come across this volume yet. Thank you for mentioning it. Best wishes, Elizabeth

  9. Hey, Elizabeth! 🙂 Just last week, I talked another internet friend into buying this book. Fyi, we’re having a conversation on my wall on Facebook. Join in, if you’d like.

  10. Love the way you constructed the mirror image. Have to look twice and the poetry underneath flows beautifully. Well done.

  11. I’m tickled pink to know you like this arrangement, ma’am. 🙂
    It’s an honor to have you here, and I thank you for the
    intelligent comment, and the inferred compliment!
    “Only God…” Peace and luvz, Uncle Tree

  12. The Angel Oak Tree is a Southern live oak (Quercus virginiana) located in Angel Oak Park on Johns Island near Charleston, South Carolina. The Angel Oak Tree is variously estimated to be at least 400 and as much as 1400-1500 years old, stands 66.5 ft (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square feet (1,600 m2).

    🙂 Thank you, sir! Glad you liked this.

  13. Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking Breath of Life. As you might have noticed I love trees so I found the artwork and photo here wonderful… Please watch my blog for more paintings of trees to come especially over the next 9 days.

  14. Beautiful blog!! I have not ever seen a blog quite as unique as yours. Wonderful shots, lyrics, music and as well I must thank you for stopping off at my website/blog. Have a great weekend.

  15. WoWzeR! That is a super compliment, John!
    Thank you so very much! Nice to meet you as well! 🙂
    And you’re welcome — Happy Friday to you!

  17. I would like to thank you for liking my post and making me a bit vein. However, I just had to leaf this response.

  18. Thank you, Caro! Glad you liked this short bit of fun. 🙂
    No worries, sweet thang, your comment was comparatively tame.

    Have a good Monday! ❤ Luvz and hugz, UT
