360. Closed circle – 22 December 2020
360. Closed circle. In the last rays of the setting sun, on the shortest day of the year, for a moment, I thought I saw my life in this knobbly old tree, its branches in the blue sky but bare of leaves, hopefully to become clothed again in green, once the Spring arrives. And all around … Life, just getting on with what it does. Nature has hardly noticed that Mankind is fighting for its life. Why should It ? All the other creatures in Nature have been fighting for their lives for so long. Mainly because of the ruthless, uncaring advance of Mankind. Are we listening ? Are we learning ?
PS It’s a London Plane Tree.
