Birch Tree

Birch trees reaching for blue sky -
white flags -
I surrender.

For Margaret's prompt at Real Toads

This is huge. A metaphor, a picture, a call, a hymn, a song, a battle, a win, a posture. Bendy birch tree!

amazingly calm visual. when i was a kid i used to like to lay in the backseat and watch all those tree tops spin by as we drove along those long country roads. :) thanks for the memory.

I want to surrender to blue skies, too. Very nice!

I am so smitten with the bodies on those trees.

Here, I think the word "blue" means sad. The sky is a person you care about very much. You've been trying to hold back or stay away, for some reason. But their melancholy touches you so deeply that you're surrendering your heart even though you know it would be safer to withhold it.

I see them now!! But then remember there was green followed by gold before their fall.
