#ThursdayTreeLove | Lit

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing which stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity, and by these I shall not regulate my proportions; and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the [wo]man of imagination, nature is imagination itself. As a [wo]man is, so [s]he sees.  –William Blake, “Letter to John Trusler,” 1799.

I’m having a hard time focusing on my tasks today, so I’m taking a short break to share a bit of tree love.

One late October evening just before leaving work, I looked out the window and whoa!  I was stunned speechless by these trees lit by the setting sun. I was mesmerized, actually.

The photos do little justice to the scene, but I hope they offer just a glimpse of the unearthly beauty that nearly moved me to tears.


I am joining Parul Thakur for #ThursdayTreeLove every second and fourth Thursday of the month. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her latest #treelove post.

    It’s amazing how the things of nature can bring such joy to our hearts. As I was just sitting here finishing my post about “darkness,” I happened to look out the window and was greeted by a most glorious sunset. It made my heart sing. A few minutes later my husband called from the other room asking me to look at the sunset. It too had captured his attention.

    There is a tree across the street that often catches my eye when the setting sun hits it. It becomes a brilliant gold. And behind is an indigo Mingus mountain. I have painted it once, and keep meaning too again. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous views with us Chandra. 🙂

    It’s gorgeous. I have also witnessed light play such tricks on trees. It’s mesmerizing to say the least and always makes me wonder that so many elements of Nature add on to each other making Earth the heaven. Isn’t it?
