Among the Giants of Green
Stands Tall and Proud, One,
In Her Royal Robes of Red
Declaring to all,

“I AM my Perfect Self
Unafraid of what’s to come
Knowing full well
My wealth of leaves
Will leave me bare
As I stand
A mere silhouette
of my Former Glorious Self.
I feel no anger nor any shame
For know I without doubt
Come Spring My Mother
Will once more clothe me
In my Royal Robes of Green.”

  1. Beautiful, Amy. I’ve yet to find a tree that has changed color. I have a maple tree in my back yard that usually turns the same shade of red as in your photo, but it’s still green. I suspect it will simply drop its leaves once winter arrives, without having changed for the fall.

    1. I’m not sure what kind of tree this is, but I am pretty sure it is not a Maple tree. Most of our Maple trees are still fully green. I have no idea what Mother is doing this year, as I as well still am seeing Robins, some even pregnant. Robins for the most part are supposed to be long gone before now. Very strange Fall this year.
      So glad you enjoyed this post today!! Hope your day is a good one! Love, Amy ❤

      1. Unfortunately, Life is continuing on throwing really hard balls in my direction. I have some issues that need attending here (one of our cats needs ear surgery that cannot be put off) and then I have to make plans on getting on a plane to see my Mother. Marissa, it’s been a down pour.

    1. Thank you, Gigi. I have not said anything on Petals regarding what is going on. Just know my Mom is seriously ill right now and facing risky surgery tomorrow. Bless you for saying something, my friend. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

  2. “In Her Royal Robes of Red” My favourite line. You make a tree come to life, Amy, with both your words and photos. That’s a marvelous capture. The “thorn” among the roses, which really is just as beautiful as anything else. Roll with the punches, take what comes our way, be confident, go forward and embrace the season. Such an inspiring poem as usual 🙂

      1. Thank you, Amy. But I really don’t think I am special. I think every single one of us is special. And that includes you. We really all should be like that red tree, standing tall and proud no matter our background and talents. Looking forward to coming by again soon. Meantime, lots of love ❤

  3. Hello Amy! I’ve been enjoying the beautiful posts on your site. The trees and the environment look really beautiful. I also feel sad that you are having troubles with your cat and the illness of your mother. I join you and all your friends to pray for her. May it be God’s grace that all goes successfully for her; and that she will become stronger after her surgery.
