Nice alliteration with "flora future," and your word "tree-mendous." We need to have great respect for trees because of all they do for us. I'll leave it to my husband to ponder on how things evolved from life in the seas of many eons ago. It's hard for me to count back that far. Great tree in the picture. judi

A wonderful use of words here as you describe the up-rooted and give it a Alien or octopussy inclination, an excellent short poem describing this very intriguing photo, very well presented****kahpot

I fear the creeping tree, It came from beneath the sea. I fear that it will overtake me. But as I allow the whatever to be whatever. I will not shrink back in fear, and as my end draws near, there is just one thing I do wish to see: the creeping tree getting close to me.

Dear Bill, I am out of six star plaques, but pleased to see that another has given you one already,
This post is Treemendously clever! where did you ever find the picture?
I have ceased to be amazed at the many gifts given you.
But I specially wanted to tell you that your wry sense of humor is very much appreciated.

Hi Bill, I can't help thinking that this tree is making a really cool fort for some lucky kids! :) Your 5-7-7 is cool too. I like the way you describe the tree as coming up from the sea, though I'm not sure you can really say that! Probably the sea eroded the bottom of the tree via tides. ;)

That really does look like an octopus, doesn't it? Nature certainly is a creative artist. Your 5-7-7 made good use of the image, too, Bill. I think Tom would be most appreciative. Well done, my friend. :)) Sandra xx

Haha - you had fun with this, Bill.
I'm sure you'd know I would appreciate this, with its wordplay.
That gnarly knobbled trunk and limbs look very capable of climbing from the sea.
