The wind is passing by

Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I: But when the trees bow down their heads, The wind is passing by.

Trees always know it: wind, rain, sun, snow... they are always a refuge and, in a way, a portrait of what's going on in our surroundings.

Yes, trees always speak in a way..
I like what you said, that trees are the portrait of what's going on. They are also a calendar, differently dressed in colors in every season of the year.
Interesting photo, is it an art project?

:) this photo was taken in Copenhagen. they have a tradition, when children leave their (I will have to give u a link for an image, I can't remember the name in English, sorry... - http://vidaincoerente.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/chupeta1.jpg), the parents make a drawing with them and attach it together in a tree. There are many many trees like this one in Copenhagen, it's wonderful. Children go there after to see how the tree is getting more and more colours and stories all the time :) and so did I when I was there :)
