Hour Glass (addendum)

Janet was kind enough to find the photo in her archives and she has sent it to me. I will try and post it here so all of you can see how spectacular the trees look and what dignity they still hold on to despite the onslaught of winds.


Gives me chills to see something so beautiful in nature. Like lovers leaning on to each other for love and support.

Sorry about the quality of the photo here. I took a photo of the photo that Janet emailed me, and saved it among my pictures, and posting it here now. .

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    Thank you, Zakiah, for posting the photo here. The cypress trees are a special feature of the “Central Coast” of California, especially along Hwy 1 between San Luis Obispo and Monterey, and I was pleased to see and photograph this group!

    Its a beautiful photo and a reminder too that we need to take care of our environment…i seldom see trees that big anymore in my hometown as it has been taken over by infrastructures and real estates..

      I am sorry you live in a concrete jungle of sorts dear heart. I hope you can have a way to get out of town often and out in the country to enjoy the trees and birds.

  3. It is a beautiful photo. Janet always gets great photos. There is much symbolism in this photo.

  4. Oh! How wonderful to see the beautiful photo that inspired your writing, SweetZ!
    I can see why you felt the muse calling to you to write about these trees and how they made you feel.
    HUGS!!! 🙂
