My life as a tree – #Bloganuary 2022 – Day 30

I am not

on the same page

with mom nature.

My wish for

a bluebird day

sparked guffaws, and

my references thought

as tomfoolery.

I feel frozen

and vulnerable to a

chilled wind as

mom nature dresses

and undresses my limbs

at her convenience,

not mine.

It’ll take a

blizzard of thoughts

and a forest without trees

for her to see

her lack of

fashion sense.

Today’s a great day to blog, and the Bloganuary prompt is:

 Describe yourself as a tree. If I were a tree I would like to be a tall Red Maple, with scarlet red leaves. I would be dressed to the max in my glorious fall wardrobe.

  1. If I was only a tree, the Palm tree will bend and sway with the wind and survive, not stubborn and ridged to fall, however a human should stand for their with beliefs with God’s grace, be stubborn for Truth.


    1. Thank you and yes, I agree the prompts got harder. I decided to respond to the prompts in my own way as long as it was relative to the subject.


  2. Love this light-hearted look at the cold weather. The first freeze in ten years around here damaged my beloved red-flowering Mandevilla vine. I think after cutting back, it will be OK. Stay warm, Eugenia! spring is just around the corner! 🙂


    1. The weather is crazy, Cheryl, and I am sorry to hear about your Mandevilla vine. Hearty plants and trees usually make a come back in the spring. Yes, spring is just around the corner and I am ready. 🌸
