Sentinel Trees



Sentinel trees 
proudly
guard my river 
like stags 





their
leafless branches 
 trophy antlers
covered 
in velvet moss





outlined 
backlit
by a stroke
of sunshine's 
gold

So lovely! Trees have a character all their own.

Beautiful, Kathleen. And the pictures, too.

I like your "trophy antlers/ covered/ in velvet moss" , a perfect evocation of your image.

Have any of you ever seen the velvet on a stag's antlers in the early spring? It shreds, peels and get rubbed off...

Thx all.
