Tree Dance

It is a windy day ~ blustery even! Looking at the tops of trees, they appear to dance back and forth seductively within the deep blue sky. Sunshine behind them make the tips of the leaves sparkle as they move. They bend and dip; They pause... and then move again. Leaves and branches merge into each other and into other trees. Shades of green leaves and outstretched branches shake and shimmy and as they do, they create their own dynamic music... hushing, rushing, whooshing, and whishing as conducted by the wind. The leaves, they are alive. They hold on and yet seem to move with abandon. Perhaps they know their summer dances are numbered. There are always tree dances, but today's dance is beautiful in its vitality.
