This picture has been forming itself in my head for a few days now. It finally had to come out. The original idea was vague, just a small tree alone on a hill with a beautiful view. The implementing of it, as with most of my digital creations, pretty much handled itself, with only some guidance from me.

If a tree on a hill, with nobody nearby,
sees a beautiful sunrise, who knows if it sighs?
Can a tree on a hill, with nobody nearby,
shed a tear for beauty that could make you or me cry?
Does a tree on a hill, with nobody nearby,
know that the sun and the rain and the stars in the sky
are gifts from our Almighty Father on high?

Up for 6 months and AS OF 16 June 2011 the number of
views is 3,864 … UPDATE: as of 22 may 2012, view count
is 4,338 … come on, five thousand!

Also available as a card with the verse at Zazzle.

    Very beautiful place and lovely poetry Ginny. Well done.

  • Thanks, Jim. My mom was the poet in the family, but it is difficult enough for me that I rarely attempt it. But I wanted to convey that this little tree has feelings and can appreciate its blessings.
