The river playfully slips over and around the rocks at Kanawha Falls. The farthest tree out appears to be a yellow poplar standing by itself on a large flat rock. I’m amazed at how strong it seems in spite of the fact that it’s growing on bare stone. It stands there gracefully looking out over the falls as a silent sentinel witnessing the change of seasons. I wonder how many kayaks it’s seen go over the falls? How many faces have passed beneath it branches? Has it listened to the conversations of those who explore life while taking a break on the rocks it calls home?
I braced my lens on a monopod and zoomed in on the tree as close as I could get with glass and steel and brought the tree home to witness my life as well. Perhaps at the end of all things when these silent witnesses give their account to the Creator the story it tells will be one worthy of listening to.
