    • JB ~ most honored for this reblog of my tribute to the stunning tree that sits on my front yard (over 50 years old)… we have been though a lot
      together. I am most thankful for your appreciation. Love and Light ~ Robyn

      • Jueseppi B.

        It’s a gorgeous tree. I can see your love of this family member sitting in your front yard, guarding your life. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. A beautiful and hopeful poem. We need gentle words to know we are needed and loved.

    June 14, 2013 at 3:38 AM

    • John thank you !! I could not agree more…. the weeping willow is a perfect metaphor in this regard. Our week of nonstop rain here allowed me to focus and appreciate just this. We really do inspire and nurture one another in so many ways. Love and Light ~ Robyn

      June 14, 2013 at 12:44 PM

  5. A big WOW what a stunning shot, what a gorgeous write up..

    June 14, 2013 at 3:40 AM

    • Soma thank you so much my lovely friend… Thrilled you enjoyed this. Have always wanted to do a piece on my “willowed friend” ~ this was the week! :) Love and Hugs ~ Robyn

      June 14, 2013 at 12:47 PM

  6. I remain totally amazed, what words and what a photo… magnificent Robyn… magnificent…

    June 14, 2013 at 4:24 AM

    • Thank you Thank you – bd — {curtsey bow} ~ It was one of those weeks of marathon rain storms… and a bit frustrated, I looked to this window and realized I could capture more of the weeping willow tree than I ever could from outdoors (it’s gigantic)! Then I really got excited about the artistic impact the window and rain lent to the image ~ and was so excited to profess my love with some words to this old guy (over 50 years old and has withstood some serious storms hurricanes and the like)!
      So thrilled you enjoyed it ~ x Love, RL

      June 14, 2013 at 12:50 PM

  7. Hi Robyn… This is beautiful as your work always is… I hope your bearing up okay with the pain, I’ve been a bit absent of late as haven’t felt much like blogging but I have been popping by for a read of your blog and it really is something to be proud of…x

    June 14, 2013 at 4:38 AM

    • Thanks so much dear Chris. I am delighted to SEE YOU! Also to know you enjoyed my little ode to my beloved weeping willow tree. Hope you are finding strength holding your own. Have thought of you often, and through my own unsolved hip woes :( This willow tree has survived at least 3 major hurricanes… not easy, I know, but we too will get through ~ always here for you! x RL

      June 14, 2013 at 1:18 PM

  8. Absolutely lovely. I am loving your photos and how you bring your words and create a lovely interpretation of your feeling and thoughts. xx

    June 14, 2013 at 5:02 AM

  10. This is beautiful Robyn! I love weeping willows! :)

    June 14, 2013 at 9:51 AM

    • Oh aren’t they special Julie! So much symbolism and truly, an amazing ‘energy’ just standing under this one… It has seen so much adversity and survived so much challenge here too. Was thrilled to write a post honoring it… especially since we are having so much rain – the “weeping” seemed even more pronounced. Thank you dear one ~ I appreciate! x RL

      June 14, 2013 at 3:16 PM

  11. Stunning and heart warming gorgeous soul xx

    June 14, 2013 at 12:03 PM

    • Oh teekay – thank you beautiful friend ~ I so appreciate and always love to see your warm smile here. Love and Light ~ x RL

      June 14, 2013 at 3:18 PM

  12. Ah Robyn, do you ever not create anything that isn’t breathtaking in it’s beauty? (Nah, you don’t – you wouldn’t be you then) I love the flow, the symmetry between the photograph and your written words. So appealing, you present the rain as a harmony to nature. Just wonderful, dearest of dearest ones! All my love, I hope the rain goes away soonest though! :) xoxo

    June 14, 2013 at 12:24 PM

    • Oh Penny – thank you so very much. I’ve been wanting to feature this special tree for a while but could not do it justice when I tried to photograph it from outdoors. I think the “through the window” view captures it authentically though ~ with the add-on bonus of that feeling of gazing out the window on a very rainy day. Raindrops seemed perfect as a metaphor for the weeping willow’s tears too. I am so glad you enjoyed this beautiful friend ~ so much love to you had have a lovely wonderful weekend! x RL

      June 14, 2013 at 10:59 PM

      • I very much enjoyed your artistry (always do). Is the actual view as beautiful as the photograph? all my love Robyn, have an excellent and hopefully sunny weekend dearest friend! xo

        June 14, 2013 at 11:02 PM

    • Oh yes Penny – it’s a giant beauty of a tree… so much good energy. It has been through so much too in it’s 50+ year lifetime — at least 3 bad hurricanes and all kinds of other challenges. I am in awe of it … one day you will need to come see! Love and hugs and sunshine ~ x RL

      June 14, 2013 at 11:15 PM

      • What a wonderfully magnificent tree it is. Yes please, that sounds wonderful Robyn! xo

        June 14, 2013 at 11:18 PM

  13. I especially loved that last word “weep”!! I wish it could convey a very nice picture for the given plot. A very lovely post as always, Dear one. :) :)

    Rahul

    June 14, 2013 at 1:32 PM

    • Thank you dearest Rahul. I am delighted to know you enjoyed my little encounter with this beloved ‘weeping’ willow tree :) ~ He is quite wise!!
      Love to you ~ RL

      June 14, 2013 at 11:01 PM

      • Yes, I know!!! This has been written by our Robyn and hence it should have such wiser tags. Hugs to you, Brave soul.\m/ :)

        June 14, 2013 at 11:34 PM

  14. We need a LOVE button Robyn. I love Weeping Willows and your created such a lovely bond between your words and image. So creative to shoot through the window and capture the rhythm of the panes. Beautiful post dear friend. Much love, Robyn

    June 14, 2013 at 2:14 PM

    • Aww – Robyn thank you so much sweet friend! Yes – isn’t there something very special about the weeping willow tree!? Another gift of nature with deep symbolic meaning. As for the idea of capturing through the window… I tried so many times to photograph it outside and it is soooo huge that I could never get an effective capture. Since we are having so much rain this week and I was indoors most of the time I though to try this …and am so happy I did. I liked the panes and the whole effect the rain on the glass produced … and now have given honor to this beloved tree. So happy you enjoyed it ~ Love to you, Robyn

      June 14, 2013 at 11:06 PM

  15. So beautiful, truly such a gift you bestow upon those lucky enough to hear your words.
    Sincerely
    Benjamin

    June 14, 2013 at 3:53 PM

    • Thank you so much dearest friend. As always, I am honored by your comment. Feel very close to this tree :)
      Sending much love and blessings your way ~ x RL

      June 14, 2013 at 11:09 PM

  16. silentfingers

    What a capture!! To me seems like a lion held in a cage. Oh Robyn I had to say that first, before commenting on the lovely poem.

    “No matter what
    Your soul I keep” — then again with a ‘killer’ line like this what’s left to say about your poetry *smiles*
    As always beautiful. Why do I detect a hint of a loving smile on the “lips of the lines” — a courageous one obviously.

    June 14, 2013 at 4:11 PM

    • Thank you so much dear sf ~ I appreciate! Yes I do see what you mean — like a majestic lion in a sense — a giant beauty! I love this tree!! Can you tell! ? :) I am just delighted to know you enjoyed this… means a lot ~ Blessings and Love lovely lady! x RL

      June 14, 2013 at 11:12 PM

  17. Beautiful Robyn. One of your most moving and best. Real insight into your wonderful soul. Kind of reminds me of King Lear: “….. and if you would weep the sorrows of this world take my eyes.”

    June 14, 2013 at 5:04 PM

    • Thank you so much Cyrano. So appreciate and happy to know you enjoyed this! This was a week of much rain here – and this special weeping willow tree has always meant a lot to me. I loved the story of King Lear… the quote you shared above is so beautiful and rich in meaning. Gratitude and Love to you ~
      x Robyn

      June 14, 2013 at 11:30 PM

  18. What a wonderful large tree-a little scary in a big storm.I get nostalgic looking at this .We had two poplars in the front yard that we could see through windows that looked the same. Sigh…I love the counterparts in this poem. Peace, J

    June 14, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    • Thank you Jane… yes it his HUGE … and this tree has actually come down and been helped back up before in one of our hurricanes. I am so inspired by its fortitude and strength. Oh – I can only imagine you missing your poplars this way – :( There is something special an energetic about a tree of this magnitude and energy watching me thought the window. I am delighted you enjoyed this ~ x Much Love and Peace dear friend ~ x RL

  20. What a beautiful tree to look upon when you’re indoors and lovely verse to go with the scene.

    Hope that rain stops soon and you can get outdoors again.

    Looks like minimal rain for me today, so hope to go for a walk later (even if it’s in the city where its more sheltered from the cold wind).

    June 14, 2013 at 8:51 PM

    • Thank you Vicki! Yes I love this tree ~ hard to do it justice in a photo but it’s a giant beauty! I have not been able to capture a good image of it outdoors but think this one give an authentic view. Oh yes – we are due for some sun tomorrow (i hope) and then more rain Sunday … never seems to end. I am glad you got out .. and will check in tomorrow to see what great shots you got on your walk! Love to you, RL

  21. Dearest Robyn,
    How beautiful this poem is, as is the fabulous weeping willow I didn’t expect! The only thing here more gorgeous than this wonderful post … is your new Gravatar! I luv, luv, luv!
    Been using all my spare time trying to get resamcconaghy.com up to snuff. It’s still ongoing but I’d like your thoughts if you get a chance to go there. F-G-S _Resa xo

    June 14, 2013 at 10:55 PM

    • Dearest Resa ~ thank you my very gracious and beautiful F-G-S ! :) I am so happy you enjoyed my tribute to the weeping willow (he is a special tree!) & yes, you liked my new gravatar? Was not sure… A little novel for me …but was time for a change; A little ‘fun’ as summer is upon us!! Yay ~
      I am definitely going to check out your new website and will drop you a note. I am betting it is incredible – like you!!

    • Noora – thank you so much for appreciating my special tree. He is even more lovely in person but I was so happy to capture this shot as I had not been able to capture a good one from outdoors (he’s huge :)) Always grateful for your loving words dear friend ~ love to you – RL

      June 15, 2013 at 10:31 AM

  24. This rhyming.. Left me speechless, as always, my dear R. You have such a soft and gentle way with words, i envy this ability! They dance around so effortlessly… Beautiful.. Simply beautiful.

    June 15, 2013 at 6:14 AM

    • Oh Chatty, & I was listening to your spoken word piece last night and just in awe of your talent with words (and narration) ~ i even recall “tossing each others’ hearts into the air” ~ wow !! Thank you for this lovely compliment – means a lot ~ much love x RL

      June 15, 2013 at 10:34 AM

      • I guess we both like what the other one is creating!

      June 15, 2013 at 2:00 PM

  28. Oh Robyn, this is one of my favourites among all that you’ve done! ‘Drink the tears your green heart weeps,’ an extraordinary line. I really hope and hope that one day you’ll put these all into a book – with the photos. You could do it all yourself with createspace – just wonderful. I will email soon – I’m a little behind… Love, Ruth xx

    June 16, 2013 at 4:07 PM

    • Thank you Ruth ~ so much! I am touched you enjoyed this — would be nice to create a coffee-table book one day… a few others have mentioned and maybe some day! I am not familiar with “createspace” – but will have to google it asap! So appreciate your encouragement dearest friend ~ x Love to you, Robyn

      • Redo You Project

        I can verify that some addictions are healthy and some poetry, arts, music, etc. are among them.

        Maybe some pro football too! Yes, I’m sure football is in there…

        Talk to you later,
        Jeff :) x

        June 17, 2013 at 4:52 PM

  30. O, Robyn……….I read this and can’t help but think of my own sweet redbud and towering evergreens. They are a part of me, with personality and presence the same as anyone else (everyone else) I love…….. I walk beneath the limbs, and know (as I know – as you know) that they lean into the place where I am, and I am blessed. You are blessed. This is beautiful, as you my dear friend. ~ Always love, Bobbie

    June 16, 2013 at 10:13 PM

    • Thank you so much dearest Bobbie. It is pretty awesome to have this kind of a bond with the nature that is part of us in so many ways… “I walk beneath the limbs and know…” — this is beautiful — I often think of those limbs as arms – protective ones. I think the trees know too! Sending so much love and still reeling from your ‘sunset’ poem yesterday (had to tweet it) — truly blew me away. Yes – blessed…we are! With Love and Appreciation ~ x RL

      June 17, 2013 at 11:55 AM

  31. stunning and deeply touching words, can sense the love coming towards this beautiful willow tree! amazing! Much love Robyn :)

    June 17, 2013 at 2:33 AM

    • Thank you so much dearest poojy ~ yes – you are correct in your instinct – this tree is a gigantic beautiful lover!! :) Hugs dear friend ~ x RL

      June 17, 2013 at 2:45 PM

  32. Your words came and comforted me. I scrolled back to the top of my iPad for another delicious read. And then – you presented me with dessert. How I love your photo of the willow.

    June 17, 2013 at 3:21 AM

    • Sheri ~ lovely lady and dearest friend…this has really made my day to know… thank you with all my heart ~ x Hugs from the magical weeping willow too – Robyn

      June 17, 2013 at 2:46 PM

  33. Wondeerful, both the tree and the words are so beautiful… :-)

    June 17, 2013 at 2:24 PM

    • Thank you dearest Drake … I am so delighted to know you enjoyed this tribute to my beloved tree ~ He is quite a beauty! Love to you, ;) Robyn

      June 17, 2013 at 2:47 PM

  34. Trees are the bestest but the photo begs the question who is observing whom? I wonder if you truly realise how bewitching and beguiling your words are…

    June 17, 2013 at 5:13 PM

    • You are most kind Ste J ~ thank you my friend. Seems the words sort of take on a life of their own at times!

      And, yes re: the weeping willow tree, I thought the same — is the tree keeping an eye on me or vice-versa? Sometimes I just stand underneath him, and try to appreciate all the good energy he emits … I think we have a mutually beneficial relationship ~ :)
      Much love to you ~ RL

      June 17, 2013 at 9:35 PM

      • I like that idea, also a wonderful place to watch the sun through the branches. Trees are really versatile, the bringer of shade, protection, stability and if you have a dog, well….

        June 18, 2013 at 2:23 PM

      • 😜 Yes puppy adores that tree!!!

        June 18, 2013 at 2:25 PM

  39. Robyn, my goodness…each poem you write reaches deep in me and…gosh, how do I say this? Makes me exhale, soften, strengthen, and fall into the divine’s arms — within my own heart. Thank you, Robyn. Yes, we need the seasons of rain – literally and figuratively. This poem reminds me/us again and again that we are held by something bigger than us, that we are not alone, that all is for nourishment. Beautiful, Robyn. Love, Lisa

    June 20, 2013 at 12:18 PM

    • Thank you dearest Lisa… that makes me feel so great – really! I am not a poet by training — trust me….but maybe a little of her resides in the heart. I agree … always something bigger than us, and always accessible if we are open and allow it. So much Love to you ~ xo Robyn

    Oh Robyn I just had to come here, to savor the might of the “majestic green one”. But then, the magnificence of you words made me almost forget why I am here. So, thought I shall as well leave a little love too, for my wonderful friend.
    Love xx

      June 21, 2013 at 4:00 PM

  41. Magical and exquisite….your words always give me a feeling of such peace. A reflection of you…for that is how I see/sense you. This photo is magnificent…such a gorgeous tree…breath taking!!! I understand the mutual love with such a steadfast sentry. My sincerest apologies for not visiting sooner…I am working on catching up! Sending so much love beloved friend…all ways… ♥♥♥♥!! ~

    June 20, 2013 at 9:15 PM

    • Aww Christina – your comments are always such a gift to me. Thank you dearest friend. I am so happy you enjoyed my weeping willow tribute here :) ~ Yes he is quite a force. Never apologize by the way — when I have souls like you in my life – it matters not about any kind of formal presence – I always know you are there ~ sending so much LOVE ~ x RL

      June 21, 2013 at 4:01 PM

  42. Much love to you Robyn. I always love reading your posts and doing my best to try interpret them in my own way. “Green heart” got me thinking about a bunch of different things. I hope you’re doing well and I’m always sending you positive thoughts -AB

    June 21, 2013 at 1:38 AM

    • Thank you dear Arash. I am just so thrilled that you can have some fun with these silly poetic projects of mine! You know I had no intention of writing poetry when I began this thing right ?! Was just going to post some nature photos (amateurish ones)… It’s funny how life takes us places sometimes. I am hoping you are having a good day today — Sending you lots of love and positive energy always, Robyn

      June 21, 2013 at 4:05 PM

      • I would hardly call them “silly poetic projects!” They are expressions from you, just like your photos, just like your writing and they say something about you and where you’re at at each moment. I really enjoy them and I’m glad that life took you on this path to start writing poetry. Much love to you too -AB

        June 21, 2013 at 6:33 PM

  43. It is not just the poetry I like but the whole presentation of it – thanks, Jo

    June 21, 2013 at 12:17 PM

    • Thank you so much Jo ~ that is such a lovely compliment. I am not sure how I got into setting up my words this way – but it happened long ago and seemed to be embraced by my readers, so have continued it as a ‘style’ of sorts. I am thrilled you enjoyed – and welcome! Love to you – RL

      June 21, 2013 at 4:03 PM

  44. Your words and your images are simply exquisite. Your words always have such a soothing quality to them. Given the physical struggle you must face each day, I don’t know how this is possible. You have a special gift dear friend. I, for one, would love to see a book of your poetry and stunning photos. Hope you are having a beautiful weekend. :)

    June 22, 2013 at 7:56 AM

    • Thank you so much dearest LuAnn. hmm… I may be soothing myself much of the time now that I think about it…? I guess that is the therapeutic/healing value of continuing to do this. Have not been able to post as often as I used to – but it warms my heart to know you feel this way. A book? … I have not given serious though, but many have mentioned this idea… perhaps I should look into it? Would be lovely just even to pass on to family and such. You are such a bright soul LuAnn – So much Love – and you too -have a wonderful weekend! x RL

      • This caregiver role we find ourselves in at the moment is very time consuming, so I have not been posting as much either. I would love to post on the topic of elder care, but not knowing who in the family may be reading my posts, I don’t feel comfortable doing so. Perhaps at some point that will change. I feel the need to find things that are therapeutic for me, as we are having some great challenges with my mother-in-law. Suffice to say, I am looking for the lessons I am to learn in these experiences. ;)

    • Oh LuAnn- this sounds like such a challenging a time for you. I imagine if/when you can blog about this topic it would be of interest to many others who find themselves in similar predicament. It’s a difficult dilemma for so many these days. I understand the conflict with family readership and your own blog. I suppose a new anonymous blog could work, if you felt it would be therapeutic. Something to think about. In the meantime I will keep you in heart and prayer .. and always here if you need to lean. Much Love, Robyn

      • What a kind, gentle soul you have Robyn. With everything you are challenged with in life, that you take the time and find the physical and emotional energy to reach out to comfort others is truly astounding. I pray that your physical health is improving or at least more tolerable. Have a restful Sunday Robyn and thank you again for your kindness.

  45. One of your better photos, not from a color or texture perspective, but the content and the many words this conveys. Or the silence it conveys as there is nothing more to be said.

    • Oh thank you so much William! Yes – this one was a little bit deep for me as well. No intention of taking it that rainy day ~ but had my DSLR handy and felt compelled to honor this beloved tree who has seen me through so much. Much Love to you my friend ~ Robyn

  46. So beautiful :) Sorry for being so far behind on your posts, I have over 300 blogs to go through and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed! HAHA! That’s what I get for taking a week off :P I can’t wait to see more of your posts!

    June 26, 2013 at 4:28 PM

    • Thanks Amanda – never feel a rush — i’m slow to post these days so maybe 1 every week or 10 days. I know what you mean about the overwhelmed though – i had no internet one day and it put me so behind — it’s a tough dilemma keeping up with the community. Sending lots of love — and hugs ! RL

      • HAHA Yeah I love everyone I follow in this community, but it can be hard when you’re set back lol! Thanks for that Robyn :D
